I'm new to what goes on with ski tuning because these voelkls are my first pair of skis. I used them 7 times at 3 different mountains and a range of conditions. I had 2 small gouges and jagged edges so I took them in for a tune. Yesterday I took them out and I could bare ski them. They felt out of control, grabby, over initiated the turn, too slippery on the ice--not the sporty, responsive, fast skis I had before. Before buying these I did extensive research and demoed many skis before deciding on these. The skis I demoed and my skis ran identically. I did nothing to my new skis but put on bindings. Yesterday on the mountain the repair guy did a quick wax and ironed the tips and tails--and that helped. But the awesomeness of my skis was still gone. I took the skis back to the shop that did the tune and they assured me that the edges are sharp (there are there's no dispute there) and that they were tuned to factory setting on the same equipment voelkl uses. I was then basically told the problem was my ability to ski in the current conditions (I've skiied this crap dozens of times and in my skis this year), and that I probably had purchased a ski that is too advanced. **Except that I was busting down blacks and picking my way down double blacks--on 3 different mountains--this these exact skis.**
The guy on the mountain appeared to check for burrs. But maybe he didn't??
I was told this never happens after a tune. That a tune makes skis better. I've read on other forums that a tune can totally change the feel and performance of the ski. So which is it?
And, what should I do? I've read extensively about the detuning debate. I just want my old skis back! I don't want these anymore. I'm worried i'm going to have to buy new skis--same model and everything bc i love(d) them. Are my current skis ruined? Would the first tune of replacement skis also ski like this? I resent that I'm being told the problem is me.
