Always worth checking the factory tune!
With that said, I have been skiing the Stockli SC the past few days, mostly off piste and in junk snow. Also some blue ice. Checked the tune, and it is DIALED. Perfect at the tips and tail, just the right amount of de-tuning above the contact point, perfectly flat. If I re-tuned it on a top-end Wintesteiger machine, I could possibly get it a little better, but it was at least 95% of the way there out of the wrapper. Most skis are 50-70%.
My AX's were done on a Wintestegier. What is the tune on that Scott? 1/2? Also I'm thinking of picking up a pair of the SC's in a 170. I'm 6' 200lb, Want to use it as an SL. Think that 177 would be a beast.
