Yeah, I know, another new ski prep thread. I did a search and found quite a few, but none really answered my questions. I bought a new pair of Nordica Steadfasts from Start Haus this spring, and had them mount the bindings. I am planning to do my own own tuning and waxing, and have been doing a bunch of researching and watching videos to learn. 2 things have me a bit stumped(at this point, but I'm sure more will come with time).
1. Do I need to have a shop grind the bases to ensure they are flat? I have seen a few places say absolutely, some say no, most don't say anything about it.
2. De-tune or not to de-tune? Again, some say absolutely, some seem to think you should be stoned to death for doing so.
Otherwise, I think I am getting a pretty good grasp on it. I will be getting the required tuning and waxing tools and taking care of my skis on my own
