Firstly, yes, this is a summer thread... :-)
After reading some of Atomicman's excellent threads and posts here, he has convinced me to change all of the angles on my skis (piste, all mountain, and powder), to be 3 degrees, base is untouched at 1 degrees. The side edges on all 3 skis have been 2 degrees up until this point.
I am an advanced skiier in Norway, and usually meet pretty much all conditions on an average day - some powder, icy groomed runs, and a delightful (and unpredictable) mix of everything in between.
As for tuning tool, I have been using the TOKO Edge Tuner Pro to keep the side edges sharp at 2 degrees, and it has been a handy little tool to do this. Now, I am considering using the same tool to change the side edges on my skis to be 3 degrees. Is it a good idea for me to do this myself (considering the tool I have), or should get them done the first time professionally to be 3 degrees?
The tool in question looks like this:
Any advice is much appreciated.
