Swandog7dam shots fired haha. I didn't even see the part of about checking out your video, nor was I saying you shouldn't watch the video. Its a safer choice just to go to the shop for now, once these skis are a little more beat then I'd try it. I wouldn't try beveling your first time on a brand new pair. That's why I was saying its more of an optional thing to do
It's all good Swandog. The thing is once the base edge is work hardened from hitting rails it's going to be very hard to do anything to it as it's going to be so hard. That's why it needs to be set up for rails before it is used for the best results. That's not to say that eventually the edges aren't going to break, because they will, just maybe last a lot longer if the ski is set up right when new. Anyway I'm just like you, trying to help out someone who is asking. As you must know a park tune and a pipe tune are two totally different things. For box and rail I would actually recommend a 2 degree base bevel and make it long as well. The contact points of the tips and tails should not be detuned or dulled. Yet I digress. I don't mean to dis you in any way, just respect that my first reply was aimed at the guy who asked, then you replied to me so I just wanted to work you a bit because of that.
Tell you what, I'm going to put in a vote for you as member of the month! Then I'm going to give you a 10! Take care man.
