i just got new pipecleaners and when they were mounting em, i had em detune the edge so that it wouldnt wear down. i can still make good turns my skis just dont get owned by the rails as much. it slows it down times 10
I know that NSG kills your edges and maybe you should post this in the right forum.
the pipe cleaner isnt just for pipe, theres not really a good pipe at either mountain i ski at and so i normally am just hittin rails or jumps.
I have also noticed my wood core skis don't crack the edge as early as foam or composite or thc cores.
If you detune in the first place, your skis should last longer, the edges wont catch as bad and wont wear down as fast. but when it comes down to it, park skis are like skateboards, they arent supposed to be pretty and new for long, when you use them you destroy them. dont be pussies about it.
go to the armada site, they rated it a 10 in pipe and the park.
