About to have them mounted up.
Should the factory tune be ok or should I have the shop do something to them other than a wax ?
The only thing I use to detune my tips and tails is a medium gummy stone. I would just try them out first to see how they perform. If they feel grabby, you could do a mild detune. I'm not a fan of using a files to detune.
I don't even think it's necessary to detune before or after the contact point. Sharp stem to stern is how we ride em.
THE FACTORY TUNE ON BONAFIDE IS A 1/3.
Ski 'em as is! And then decide if they need any work, if needed would be too much base bevel. NO detuning needed, the tip and tail are off the snow until you roll them on edge.
I skied on a new pair and they skied fine (if you like the ski) I didn't care for 'em. In fact they were a new pair of my buddies and he took my Mojo '94's (also tuned 1/3) and asked if I could tune his BonafIeds like my MOJO's. I had to break the news to him...................THEY WERE TUNED THE SAME!
THAT'S WHEN HE SENT THEM HOME WITH ME AND CHECKED THE GEOMETRY....................................YUP 1/3!
He said my Mojo's 94's were more confidence inspiring
