I figured it had been. Thanks, though.

Also, i did not know it was called a core shot. That helps.

Ok, now where can i buy some p-tex? I went to a ski shop, and they said i couldnt buy it because of liability issues..
And i can seem to find it at hardware stores

if its half as wide as a penny that might be wide enough that you would need a base rapair. i never tried to ptex a gouge that wide in base material before so i dont know how well it would hold (maybe it holds great:dunno:). definitely worth a shot though. if it doesnt hold, try again since you are new to repairs. if it falls out again, you probably need to put in a new piece of base material like a patch.

I'm partial to using a soldering iron with a flat tip... pressing & melting in Ptex coils (not the candle type). Works well because you melt the base in with the new material.
