I looked into selling Moonflex diamond stones and I think I will carry them next year. I think I can beat the best prices (that I have found). I will sell them for $18.99 (70 mm) and $27.99 (100 mm). Can anyone beat that? If you have time, I would be very grateful if you could give me an idea of which ones you find the most useful in the posted poll.

Thanks!

I bought the 100 and 400 this year. If I had only one, it would be the 200.

Moon'in

That is a good price. I got the three grit special from Alpine Racing Technology. Black/red/yellow's what I chose. I have many DMTs, a three set of Swix Diamond Waves, a set of Boride stones and a complete SVST WC Stone set. But since I got the Moonflex all I ever do is clamp one to my Toko 87 put my ski on edge in the vise....and rub a dub dub I got sharp skis in the tub. Smart move to sell the Moonstones.

I only use the 100 and 200, have a white one but don't bother with it. I can go fast enough.

I will book mark your site and place an order in the Fall.

Thanks for the offer

i use all 5 every other time i ski (maybe skipping the 100 if the edge is still good). i found using the 600 and 1500 especially important. it hardens the edge for a longer lasting edge.

i used to sharper every 5 or 6 times out, and i found i was taking too much edge off each time i sharpened. by sharpening more often and with the higher numbered stones, i get a better, stronger edge.

i use the 200 and 600. Seems to be all the finer i need to polish my edges.

Thumbs up for Moonstone over DMT. I use the 200 and 400.

Does anybody else have the same experience as B R in finishing the tune with a higher grit results in a harder edge? If so, I'll include a higher grit stone, however I don't understand the logic of how a finer grit results in a more durable edge: .

I also use all five stones, also skipping the 100 if the edge seems ok. I'd do one return pass using overlapping stokes & then one continous return stroke with each stone. Each stone gets a squirt of Secret Sauce before use & then I wipe the edge with fiberleen between stones. All on the side edge only. Then deburr with a Toko block.

I can't say if this method lasts any better than another method as I've only ever done it this way.

I will have Moonflexes in stock next week and I will sell them for $18.99 (70 mm) and $27.99 (100 mm), or if you want all 5, I will sell one of each of the 5 colors/grits for $89.99 (70 mm) and $134.99 (100 mm). If you order through my site www.racewax.com I will discount the shipping via a rebate (after I ship it though, else PayPal gives me errors). or if by phone I can discount it on the spot.

Thanks for your input on this poll,

Is that for the 70mm or 100mm length?

I expect to have Moonflexes in stock this week and I will sell them for $18.99 (70 mm) and $27.99 (100 mm), or if you want all 5, I will sell one of each of the 5 colors/grits for $89.99 (70 mm) and $134.99 (100 mm). These prices will be honored for a short time only (I am buying a limited amount). After this I will offer them at a discount through a special epicski discount site. This will be up a few months from now and the price will be slightly higher.

If you only were to get 2 of them, which would people recommend the 200 grit, and 400 or 600?

While on the subject, how do you tell when one of these is worn out? I don't want to replace before necessary. Lew

I have moonflex diamonds in stock and I will sell them at the price I quote above for at least the next few weeks. I will also trim a bit off the shipping. All of this is only for Epic members only. So if you buy online, please identify yourself in the comment box at checkout, or by email. If using paypal, you can just pay the total and I will follow up with a refund shortly thereafter.
