More times than not, the tune up a shop does makes the skis worse not better. In fact is difficult to ever duplicate the original factory feel.
You should certainly throw some wax on 'em before you ski on 'em but leave the edges alone until you try them!
I totally and wholeheartedly agree on every point!
The tune should be fine right out of the box - even better then most shop tunes as Atomicman said. Also, some of the shops by me won't even do a 3 degree side edge as Atomic calls for. I don't know how you can be an Atomic dealer and not be capable of tuning the ski's properly to Atomic spec.
Just throw some wax on 'em and you're set to go!
