So I've been pretty happy with my Chargers, until...boom

Image

Started with a little chip on the back end, probably from my skin tails, but the majority of it happened in a single tour (after about 5 total).I'm almost certain this one is toast, but with some trips planned in the next few weeks anyone know if this is even marginally fixable, glue-able, or ignore-able?

As a ski instructor I have had pretty good luck with sending things back to the vendor. One time my Atomics lost camber in a ski, I sent them back, (Told them I skied and worked at Mammoth) they sent me a new pair of skis not even on the market. No questions asked.

That de lamination of your skis is unacceptable. That should never happen.

woodworking super glue will fix it - think super glue on steriods -
fixed the tip on one of my Katanas 3 years ago and still going strong -
first 3 inches or so had delaminated - glued it, clamped it - - good to go !

Cool, thanks for the info GWAP and M2M. I'll try the glue this weekend. Will have to call Voile to see about a replacement.

Sorry to hear it... Apprently its not just a K2 thing... same thing happened to my buddys board (fatter section but only a few inches up the tail) and we wondered if it happened when the Gondi loader slid it down into the holders on the door.

Yeah I epoxied it and it held up fine for the remainder of the season. Probably going to semi-retire them until I can find a cheap set of bindings.

The main disappointment was that I never heard back from Voile.
