Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationaryÖ thatís what gets you.
and run it down the areas you want to be dulled at a 45 degree angle (perpendicular to the edge) until it is dull enough to your desire....

Gummy stones suck for the amount of detuning you would want for rails. Just use a hand file and go at it. Don't rely on rails to do the detuning for you. That leads to more catching, and it fucks up the edge more in the short and long term.
Also, as said in another thread, use Gear Talk for this shit.
wait who is a 45 degree angle perpendicular to the edge?
If you are mutual friends with tom wallisch, steve stepp, ec headwear, saga outerwear, stept productions, ian cosco or any other popular person you added on FB because you're a 15 year old douche, stop adding me.
If i ignore you don't add me again.
If you really want me to add you, send me a message and 99% chance ill still ignore you.
PS i dare you all to add me in a plot to annoy me more i will then know that you all love me to a great extent sincerely eheath
I've definitely heard that gummy stones work well but I usually just let the skis detune themselves by hitting rails. It takes a day, but then I've found that it's the most natural way to detune them because you're applying the same pressure to each area of the edge as you will throughout the ski's lifetime, if that makes sense.
same here this works great for me.....plus who wants to detune like the tips and tails and the part that hooks when you go in for a turn. I find underfoot is generally all i need some people though want more up to you op
