I understand that skis when they come directly from the factory are prepared with a travel wax rather than a actual 'ready to ski' wax? Is this correct?
Also do the edges/bases of the skis require tuning before use? A full service or a light service - ie just removed wax and re-apply plus tune edges?
Sorry if this is obvious but I am finally had enough of rental skis and decided to make the jump to my own skis.
My Head icon's look as if the edges are set to some extent but have the factory stickers still on them. Also have a Head quality control 9 label and I would be curious to know what this means precisely.
