    Question Funky Foam..????

    Hey Guys...

    Have a look at these picture..

    Between myself and two friends we've owned over ten skis between us..

    Ain't never seen buoyancy foam like this before..?

    Is it a country specific thing..???

    I'm Baffled..

    Looks like a fungus that is on the foam! Or it could be oil residue or something? is it only there in the front or all over including in the rear behind battery box and silencer?

    ?????????

    I thought it was mold or fungus too...

    But its definitely the foam.. its random black beads of poly..
    All crushed the way it should be..

    I had a really good close look.. then called a couple of friends over to have a look..!!

    The consensus is that's the way it left the factory..?????????

    One of my friends says, Yeah: i've had parts shipped in foam like that..??

    I could take a better picture with a real camera..
    Not the flintstone mobile camera phone..!!!!

    I have never seen anything like that before. And my head has been in numurous skis. But i did ask a packing company about this and he said it is not uncommon to see foam shot in diiferent color. He said that he doesnt know why they dont shoot all foam in skis black.(too keep it looking clean) He said they shoot all color foam what ever mix they get their hands on. I wish i got some black foam!
