I had a local ski shop mount bindings to my new Rossignol S3's yesterday. My instructions were to mount only, which they did fine on. This shop normally does a machine wax with all mounts, which I specifically instructed them not to do, as I prefer my own hand hot wax. I expected a mount only, with absolutely no other service performed, however, when I picked up the skis, the tech said that he detuned the tip ad tail edges, which I did not request or expect.
My question is:
What is recommended for tip and tail edge detune on Rossi S3's ?
I was going to do a very, very slight detune on tips and tails (basically just gummy stone), than see how they felt on the snow and go from there. It appears that the tech at the ski shop did a much more aggressive detune, and rounded the tip and tail edges with a file. I'm not concerned about the shop making things right if I'm not happy - they're usually very good about that. Really want to find out what others are doing and what is recommended for detune on S3's ? Anyone running them as-is from the factory ?
