So I dusted off my old Metron 9 skis and thought: Hey, let's get them tuned up and maybe have some fun on what once were "the skis that took me to the next level". So $50 later I take them out and holy cow(!) were they ever fast-in a straight line.
But.....they...didn't...want to turn. I mean it was like the skis were on railroad tracks. Boy oh boy. Me on a long blue run stopping every couple of 100 feet. Looking like a rank beginner. Almost falling if I got up to speed and tried to turn.
My fingers and eyes said the tune looked and felt good-no apparent railing. But it was odd that the edge felt sharper if I ran my finger towards the base rather than away-like my other two pairs feel. I told the guy I wanted the edges 1* and 3*. Any ideas? I can't imagine that he gave me a 3* base and a 1* side bevel. And he did detune the tips and tail.
Now mind you they skied OK prior to the tune, but felt like it could use a tune. The base was a bit concave so I have him do a base grind. The guy was proud of his work and seemed to know what he was doing.
Puzzled and ready toss the skis.
