I picked-up the Line Prophet 100 a few weeks ago -- there was a thread -- and finally skied on them Tuesday. I had lots of fun on them; I can talk about that later, but I will admit here that the P100s exposed a few of my bad habits, and I was forced to remember some actual technique for the rest of the day.
Near the end of the day, I noticed this on the left tail:
It would appear that I crossed my tails at some point -- but I have never ever seen this kind of damage on any of my skis, ever. And this on their maiden voyage. You may guess that I'm slightly depressed.
I cannot imagine that "normal wear and tear" covers such an early and blatant gash. As I said, none of my skis have ever looked like this, even after years of abuse. What gives? Is this typical?
