Oi watch who you're calling Cooksie! Actually I have embraced modern ski technology completely and don't even own a pair now - even when I was skiing for entire seasons and I was a lot fitter than I am now a pair of Rossignol 4S's would last 2 1/2 months or around 10 weeks minimum, so I reckon now I'v aged a bit and not as fit I would struggle to wear out a pair in double that.
Taking all of the above into account and the quality of rental skis and the cost of putting them onto the plane not to mention the maintenance I hire "premium" hire skis and they serve me very well indeed!
