I actually found that I had to have my Karmas and Mantras "de-tuned" (i.e. the tips and tails dulled a bit) rather than having a full blown tune.
I half disagree. If the skis are flat, just wax & ski. The factory tune is likely as good as you get except from a very skilled ski tech. If they aren't flat, then they need to be flattened.
|Dulling the tips & tails depends on your ski style. If you carve, you want the tips & tails sharp. If you prefer to skid your turns, you need them dulled. I'd try them the way they are, but bring along a small stone in your pocket. If they feel grabby, dull the tips 1" at a time and the tails 1/2".
