Factory Tune on the Black Pearls

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know what the factory tune is on the Blizzard Black Pearls? Thanks!

If they are like most other factory skis........... lacking.

 

I'm constantly amazed at the tunes on even high end skis. They all need hand work for sure to

get the most out of them.

My bones are 1* Base and 3* Side, which I have liked where I ski. Nice and grippy for east coast. I'd probably detune them a bit for west coast.............. but one of my buddies picked up a set of Black Pearls and wanted to know the factory tune.............

Just because the factory claims  they are, doesn't mean they actually are.

And most likely not uniform across the entire bottom either.

Consider the factory tune a starting point to a real tune.

She wanted to know so she could tell her shop her preferred angles when she takes them in.................

My wife's Black Pearls (from last year) were 1/3, just like my Bonafides.  I verified this with a sharpie, edge guides, and diamond files.
