So I got my edging kit. Has side angle tool, gummi stone, 3 diamonds and a metal file.
I want to work on my Rossi Phantoms to get ready for my ski trip later this week. I'll be skiing moguls(likely hard packed and deep) in SLC and am hoping to get the skis right.
I'm a bit confused, even though I've been skiing >40 yrs I've never worked on my ski edges. Do i need to worry at all about using that metal file? Or is that if I just want to change the angles, which I assume I shoulder stay away from. All Rossi skis are listed as 1,1 angles.
Do I use the gummi stone first, then it appears I read I should use it last also.
Do i just carefully run the angel tool a few times on the edges going from black>blue>red.
Also, detuning, which i assume is last step, I round out the edge both on tips and tails so many cm's from end to help prevent catching an edge?
I'm sure after I use the equipment a little it won't seem like such a mystery, but a little initial guidance is appreciated.
I'm an aggressive skier, looking for bumps all day. I read that a deeper angle might be better for me?? Should I even worry about trying to put a 2 or 3 angle on the edge? (probably not).
Anyway, today is a good day for all of this, because it's brutal outside here in Pa!
