Dull Edges?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was watching some jibbing videos on YouTube, and as I was reading through the comments one guy said that dull edges make riding a rail easier, as the edges don't catch on the rail. This seems like it would make it harder to ski in general, though the idea makes sense.

 

Opinions?

Dull edges and hardpack snow aren't really all that compatible...  The softer the snow, the less you need sharp edges.

It makes the skis slide a little better on the rail (no catching), but it also keeps you from tearing the edges out of your skis. Usually park skis are detuned underfoot with sharp edges everywhere else. If your gonna ride rails, you dont want to do it with a sharp edge.

It's like driving a car with no brakes.
