Last time i was skiing, i almost accidentally front flipped a few times because i'd get sudden instances of intense friction from the fronts of my skis. I was also overall slow, compared to my brother who was on chronics (orange ones), which have sintered bases i think. I have still have first gen disorderlys which, after however many seasons of use, have really lost there speed. i wax them myself, scrape and all that. But they're really pitifully slow at this point. Plus they've got a fair amount of scratches and ptex repaired gouges in the bases. couple that with lots of rails and some grade F NJ slush, which is barely snow most of the time and i've got the recipe for no speed. And i like going fast so thats not cool. Snow was a lot faster at night obviously, but during the day, horrible.
i figure structuring these would be dumb since i'd probably do away with the structure right? and i need the amount of base i still have left. Slow bases are my only concern as i was thinking of getting halos eventually.
any opinions? tips to make skis faster?
