Seriously, Take a look at a season's used edge at 25X . Even after a fresh "tune", You will note a "continuously variable effective edge". No way around it. Variable degrees of imperfection. Damage even that would take removing "too much material" to grind out. Still, a fresh tune, and the old boards are skiing great. (in spite of all the variation?) So when does the "edge angle" begin? How is it effected by base flatness (or lack of)? Questions... questions.....??
Just because one person "doesn't like" the way something feels doesn't mean another person may not find the same thing just fine. "Better" even.
That is just how humans work, we are not machines.
To think of it another way, What is the "edging" performance of all the ski shape variations? I've found some skiing pleasure to enjoy in just about every one.
Even "hooky" edges can be great fun when you are paying attention. No real edges at all work just fine in soft snow.
Oh Well..... Opinions are like...... ;-)
