I thought this would be an interesting thread, it migth fail but worth a shot.
It seems clear to me that and increasing number of 'pros' (by which I mean 'known' skiers), are using skis that are far more flexible than their 'out of the box' flex point. Off the top of my head examples include Kieran Mcveigh's Soul Riders, Max Hill's Afterbangs and all of Maximillian Smith's various scott skis. They all flex like OG EP Pros but are nowhere near that soft from the factory, pretty sure these guys aren't 'pro' enough to have specially made pairs so:
How do they achieve this flexibility?
Do you (NSers) do anything to your own skis?
their skis arent that much more flexible than they are out of the box. they're pros and they make getting serious flex look easy when its really not.
Also, these guys go through MANY pairs of skis a season, they ride hard on them everyday
if they spend 2 runs doing nothing but butters their skis will be fully broken in, after 2 weeks their cores have lost the majority of the strength they had when new.
you don't want to break in your skis any more than regular riding already does.

This exactly really. It's easy to make a ski super soft just riding it but it will pretty much ruin it. If you get a free pair when ever (which admittedly is not usually the case for pros) it does not matter but if you want them to last a season it's not a good plan.
