Nordica Beast 92 - The disposable ski - Awesome customer service
Well, these skis lasted me a total of 1/2 day. They should call it the bambi because it sure as hell isn't tough. I'll wait to see how (Name Witheld) of the Nordica warranty department treats me before I make final judgement. The rep, (name witheld) said he hopes they'll hook me up but didn't defend his product at all. After all, I'm the one who skied them in an area where they might touch something other than powder snow.
The good: These things can whip around on a dime, are stiff enough to handle full tilt screaming runnouts through chop, and stomp landings like no other. Awesome.
The Bad: Sidewall/cap disintegrates at the thought of rocks. I'm not even talking about a break your edge hits but slightly bottoming out on a 4 foot pillow top. Boom, my edge is inside my ski and the sidewall is blown.
Current verdict: No matter how good a ski may perform, if it can't take the slightest abuse it's a worthless product and not worthy of anyone the ski is marketed/supposedly designed for.

but the company rocks--------
Just got a call back from the rep. who talked with the warranty guy. Pretty quick service durring the holidays.
I can either:
A) send in the ski and they'll warranty it for me (takes time), or
B) pick up an extra plank from another warrantied pair on my way up to kirkwood and keep the third as a spare. (and still warranty them later if another blows up on me)
I'm now a happy camper again and really looking forward to skiing them the rest of the season. Super stoked they took care of it so quickly too.
New verdict: Awesome ski that should be sold in triples instead of pairs.
