Goode Mid Fire bottom peeling

Chef23Chef23 Posts: 6,042 Mega Baller
I had a disaster of a set this morning and when I took my ski off the bottom skin of my ski is peeling off. It is a Goode Fire Mid that is in its second season. Has anybody had an issue like this before?

I haven't reached out to Goode yet I am about to do that but it is bad timing because I leave for Coble's Ski School tomorrow and have a tournament the following two weekends and don't have a ski right now.image

I know April sells HO so maybe I come home with an A3.

    My neighbor had that happen to his Fire. Goode replaced it. It looked like a snake shedding its skin.

    @JayG80 that is good to hear. I just sent Goode an email I figured they wouldn't be there on Saturday morning.

    @rfa it wasn't visibly like that last weekend and I ran -32 on Thursday so I think it was okay then.

    I'll say hi to April for you.

    Goode skis ski pretty good, but they are not famous for bulletproof construction. Yet to see a D3 with something like that...

    Just left April and Chris's place Thursday....had Wednesday nite tacos with over 30 students ....went on the school bus for ice cream too! Awesome place ! Her folks are super nice too!

    Coble's place is great. You are a braver man than I am if you got on the school bus. I usually have a rental car there and we take that and meet the kids at ice cream.

    The Coble and Eller (Chris' mom drives the bus sometimes) family are great it is a lot of fun. We are bringing 10 skiers from our lake down there next week.

    Great news on the replacement. Goode has really changed their customer service from dubious to great in just the last few seasons. I think I know at least one reason, but I don't think he wants me to "out" him on this board :).

    I am loving the idea that we have 10+ skiers on our lake interested enough to go to Cobles!

    Meanwhile I am trying not to quit the sport after another great week of practice (shoulda run a -38 in backwash but choked it) and another terrible tournament day. But today something was definitely wrong with me -- no energy at all. In fact I've been mostly sleeping since 4pm (and I'm sure everyone enjoyed those 6 hours of no posts from me). Here's hoping tomorrow will be different!

    I had the exact same problem on my Goode 9960 mid. It is 2 seasons old! So far, I am still using it, but don't know how long it will last.

    @Chef23 - even with the Goode being delivered, try demoing the new A3! Awesome ski, as I demoed it last week - and ended up taking it home.

    The bus ride to ice cream was fun by the way!!!
  • Chef23Chef23 Posts: 6,042 Mega Baller
    @Skoot123 I skied 3 sets yesterday on the A3 and came away underwhelmed. It felt twitchy to me and I didn't trust it. By the third set I felt I could make it work but I was more comfortable right away on other skis.

    I am at the Fedes office right now and nobody can find my ski. It got stuck in Memphis on Sunday night and it is supposedly in the building I am in right now but nobody knows where it is.

    Speaking of Goode customer service, I got a 9800 SL and a wiley power plate recently from and I must have called them at least 10 times to help me figure out the dual lock...what time on the ski vs boot, what was on there now, etc. I was really impressed.

    @Chef23, let us know how it goes at Cobles. I bet you're glad to get your ski!

    Has anyone seen any other brand of ski fall apart like this?

    Years ago, HO Extremes peeled like that. Went through 3. HO stood behind every one.
  • Chef23Chef23 Posts: 6,042 Mega Baller
    Ran 32 off out of the water bothe sets on my new 9960 Mid. The ski feels much better to me than the A3 did. More stable, turns just as well and gets plenty of angle. I am glad to be back on it and thank the folks at Goode for getting it to me quickly.

    Not feeling completely comfortable on the new stick. I have run 32 every set but 1 but the offside is slow coming around. We added some tip tonight and we will see how it works tomorrow.
