Metron detune?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Those of you that own a Metron, are your tips and tails detuned? I just noticed that mine are.

Trust the force, Luke! Don't detune!

I should have been more specific. Generally when discussing a detune you are talking about detuning (dulling) an area behind the contact points of the skis. I think old skis where detuned this way. The practice for shaped skis seems to be to use as much edge as possble (shorter skis) so don't detune. What I was wondering is if the Metrons had their non-contact (upturned) areas dulled.

Ah! I don't bother to detune that area, either, but I never have. I'd rather have sharp edges when they come in contact with the snow than be "protected" from them hooking.

Yeah, I don't usually detune the shovel. However, a friend of mine pointed out that when skiing bumps you don't want the shovel to be hooking up on you.

I was asking because my B5's have a slight detune to them and I didn't do it. So its either factory or the shop did it when they mounted the bindings.

I've heard that, too, but have never actually experienced it, even though I've always run the sharp edges up the shovel a bit.

B5 Tunning.

Mine were slightly railed, definitely not 1 degrees, so I hand tuned them as close to 1 as I could. When I was at Vail last week I dropped them off at Precision Ski in Frisco and had them do a 1 an 3. They ski great and like SSH said, don't de-tune, just verify they are at 1 and 3.
