I feel like the only time I start a thread is when I have some kind of ski conundrum! But here goes again:
I took my Auras to my usual shop for new binding, base grind ... basic tune. They have about 50 ski days on them. I take them out on the snow and the right ski is crazy wonky! It started squirreling, tip and tail, on a small patch of ice on a minor grade traverse to the ski trail. On a cruiser blue "steep" section, I hung a left to head for some windblown soft and the same ski went crazy again on a patch of slick. I pushed down on the camber and the ski literally jumped up off the snow.
I put a straight edge on the base and I didn't even need a flashlight to see the low "rail" running down the whole center of the base.
I took it back to the shop. They tried to tell me it must have come from the factory like that. After a few, we convinced them that wasn't possible. They say they can fix it. I have been really happy with this shop in the past. They have tuned (including base grind) 5 other pairs of skis for us and the results were excellent.
How the heck does that happen in a shop that uses and Wintersteiger machine?
How much is this going to shorten the life of my most beloved skis?
Am I being too nice in accepting a "fix"?
