i have plastic skis on my 500 and metal on the 600. i vote plastic all the way, i feel they glide over the snow better (like less friction) and ive done jumps and hit trees and all that with the plastic skis on my sled, not a mark, not a dent, not a snap. i beleive they are very durable
I bent one of my stock Arctic skis under a tilt trailer last year. Bent right back and just left a little crease. Replaced it anyway cause I like to keep my sled mint and the crease was staring me in the face everytime I looked at it.
A good plastic ski is a definate upgrade for most any sled.
I went with C&A's on my ZR, and they were even a huge upgrade over the stock plastics. I got my C&A's (ADX model) from www.recstuff.com ...email 'em, deal with Doug, great guy. Gave me an unbeatable price.
