Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:

Tail delam on Kore 93s

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Got my Kore 93s on the bench today to edge and wax them ready for the SOPiB and as I cast my eye over them before starting work I noticed that both tails have delaminated.

My initial thought is that some idiot ( Shocked ) has dropped them on their tails, but I'm pretty sure I haven't. Damage definitely occurred in the past week's skiing, during which I only used them a couple of times. The rest of the time they were in an indoor ski locker, them they came home overnight in the roof box (which almost certainly froze).

The skis are 2 years old, have about 30 days on them and not had a particularly hard life.

Worth going down the warranty route, or just clean 'em out, epoxy and clamp, or...? The delam doesn't appear to go more than a cm into the tails (less on one ski) but it has pushed the tail edge down a couple of mm.

being as the edge appears to be bent, that would suggest that it is impact of some sort, i would clean em out and get some decent epoxy and glue and clamp it, make sure you get the right glue for thejob @spyderjon can recommend some

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@CEM, yep, the edges are bent and I agree it looks like impact. Bit bizarre as I don't recall dropping them (which would be the most likely way to do it, I think, and explain why one is worse than the other of the skis were slightly offset when together).
