Ski diamond detuning skis
ok guys so its been just a couples days into the season for me and i have been catching on rails and stuff, i highly doubt its cause my edges are to sharp, there are burs in them etc, but i dont want to get them sharpened do i? Do i need a ski diamond for this so i am able to hit rails without catching. Sorry if this is an obvious answer
could barely understand the op but...
run a gum stone or file at a 45 degree under where your boot is to dull it down a bit. sharp edges catch easily, dull edges dont, and burs shouldnt make a big difference unless they are massive chunks taken out of the bottom of the edge.
Bring em to a shop and ask if they'll belt grind your edges and just mark with masking tape where you want them grinded. They should do it for free

if not invest in a diamond file
run a rock over the edge, and just ski a lot of rails, they'll detune after a while ....
