Crap rail, or is it my skis?
I was doing a flat rail the other day.. the best way i can compare this is imagine if your sliding through water, and then suddenly something thicker.
I'd slide fine then at some points my skis seemed as if they hit like a goo on honey on the rail and i'd drastically slow down, almost falling forward. This happened multiple times, i asked a couple snowboarders the next day and everyone said the rail was fine, but then again i doubt they notice much with 5ft of contact
You edges are probably new/sharp? Otherwise the rail is just sticky, not too hard to figure out which one it is.
If I had to guess my edges are crap. I got the skis about midway last year, no tuneup since then. Edges aren't dull but I definetly wouldn't say they're sharp. I'm just wondering if there's any chance due to the bottom of my skis from previous rails. They're aren't any big scrapes, but maybe a couple that are around 1mm +/- .25 deep or so so would that possibly effect it?
no u want ur edges to be dull. if they're sharp ull catch them on the rail resulting in a faceplant
nah dude, its the rail
whats the rail made of, PVC? or is it Urban

Its probably the rail. If its really cold out sometimes the rails jsut get really sticky and it sucks.

if its the same rail, same spot everytime, your skis are fine

its probably the rail, but theres a really easy way to figure this out. hit another rail and see if its the same problem.

skiing okemo is like a handjob from an ugly chick: not optimal but better than nothing (ethan stone)

^huh? and its probably the rail i have that problem with this one rail at snow valley i have to like bomb down the hill just to slide the whole thing then i go to other places and the rails slide like crazy and im usually not ready for it and end up looking stupid, but its a good idea to dull your edges if youre worried about it
