Just picked up my new Mantras last weekend, and will be using them in Southern VT next weekend. My question is ......are the factory bases and edges ski ready? I have been told by a number of that the bases and edges come out of Volkl ready to go, while others have said that edges are good, but the bases should be hot boxed or that i should hot scrape a few times with a base prep wax, then a "wax for the day" . I have skied a bunch of times this season already, so this will be my last trip of the season. Im wondering if the bases will be good for this weekend, and then hot scrape after (leaving a coat of base prep wax on the bases) before storing for the summer.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
