Nuances of a good/bad tune

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
There have been several imbedded conversations lately on few threads about tunning, edges, grinding, angles, etc.

For the average person are there any tall tale signs of a good/bad tune?

What can or should one actually "look" for after a tune is done?

And what should one "feel" or "look" for for while actually skiing?

Any tips or general rules of thumb one should follow?

Thanks

I've experienced tune problems twice - once a pair of my own skis and once on demos.  In each case the skis were unstable and were just about impossible to set an edge.  Detuning the tips fixed the issue on my personal skis.  I returned the demos to the tent and mentioned the issue.  They said the skis had been freshly tuned but not sure what they did about it.

I had a bad tune on a snowboard. You would put it on edge to carve a turn and it wouldn't turn. Weirdest thing ever.
