Gash on race stock GS top sheet

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Had a ski out this past weekend which resulted in my uber sharp edge making contact with the other ski's top sheet, such that it cut through the clear coat, graphics sheet, and the top metal layer. What if anything should I do about this? For one thing I am afraid moisture might get in there and begin to damage the ski via expansion of the core or delamination. Thanks

how'd the new boots work out?

'cut thru the metal layer?" that can't be good

New boots have been an epiphany! I have NEVER skied better or in more control and comfort.

Yeah I was not at all happy to see what I did to my once mint skis.

Cat all the way through the metal layer?

My guess is that if the metal top sheet is cut all the way through, these skis are done! Does it still flex as it is supposed to?

The cut is only about an inch long centered and at an angle behind the bindings, but I have not noticed any negative affects.

I'm always looking for new rock skis. I'll give you 20 bucks for 'em...

Use some quality epoxy and sand down to a flat finish.

The ski will be fine, dry completely, epoxy, clamp, let stand, sand down, ski more.
