    Extend BEST or not??

    I've been debating back and forth for months about extending my BEST warranty. (located in MA)
    I only put about 20 hours per season on the ski (07 RXT, metal washers done since new), and the ski has given me no problems.
    I'm just having a hard time justifying spending $800 or so on a gamble.
    My wife has the same ski, and her warranty runs out next summer, so I'll be doing this again.
    Am I being penny wise and pound foolish if I don't extend them while I can?
    I have until mid July to decide.

    I appreciate any comments and experiences.

    Let's see, how can I say this without being rude...

    You would have to be a complete fool not to get the extended warranty. One dropped valve and you can have $7,000 in parts and certified labor. You have been warned; it's cheap insurance for 3 years, get it.

    I can only get two more years for about $800, and I knew you would be the first to reply in favor.=)

    Even at $400 a year it's worth it. What year are your skis?

    Just extend it and get it over with. Riding is much more fun when you dont have to worry about major repair bills.
