ON3P Need help new skier here about detuned edges.
I'm a new skier and I bought some really cheap ON3P's FR and they are detuned on the underfoot I was just wondering since I'm really new to rails and want to shred and hit some jumps starting out can I sharpen the edges back up to normal ON3P was the ones that detuned them. Thanks sorry if that was a dumb question.
Just take them to a shop and ask for a 1/1 tune
Honestly if you hit any rails at all you should leave them detuned underfoot. It helps you slide easier without catching and it doesn't really impact your performance that much as long as the rest of the ski is pretty sharp.
Ski them first. If you need to tune them later do so.
If you're skiing park why would you sharpen your edges. It will help the life of them from hitting rails and you're less likely to catch and crack your edges. You'll want it that way, trust me. I'm sure a lot of people would agree
Don't sharpen them without skiing them. I promise you they are still sharp enough to shred, but you DON'T want to hit ANY rails on really sharp edges. It can destroy the ski and/or you.
