Damaged Skis - buying second hand

Hey guys. Bit of advice please. I am thinking of buying a set of second hand skis. The ones I'm looking at are Rossi bandit X carvers. They have had one repair on the base edge near the bindings. Do you think its a bad idea? Cheers

tafbok, did you end up buying those skis?

Unless there's sidewall damage or the base repair was extensive (deep gouges or severe scratching), there shouldn't be a great deal of concern.

If the repair was done by a ski shop, and they look physically good then they are fine.
