NeweHey. It's been few years since the last time i was skiing and this winter i've really wanted to get back on skis and i just bought myself new skis. I've always had used skis before so they've kinda had a bit smoother edges so rails have been fine, but i was wondering if i should actually try to make the edges of my new skis a bit smoother somehow so they'll slide better on rails or do you think i'll be fine with them as they are
ThundercatGo to a shop and get a full detune. it will prolong your edge life and you wont catch your edges as easily. People will say it hurts all mountain performance which it does but I don't think it does to the degree that people make it out to be.
JTTremblesGo to a shop? wtf? nah go to your local street curb or grab a file from your basement and file those edges down
ThundercatOr if you are poor do what he says
J_Steezfile em down underfoot
Dustin.You'll be fine without it for sure. If you are nervous you can always take a rock to them under foot for a few passes. It's about the simplest, most caveman concept in the world to dull an edge so please don't buy a special rock or pay someone to do it.
