Thanks Max. I'm really naive here. A couple of times after having my skis tuned they were very "grabby" and skied quite differently if the skis were swapped from left to right. Any idea what they might have done wrong? Unfortnately, the bad tunes have been from local shops that are easily accessible for me. After other tunes they've skied great. Stopped at a local place the other day and they said they always did 1 degree side and 1 degree base. I'm curious about what changing the bevel does. What would be the effect of changing the edge bevel from 1 to 2 degrees? How about changing the base bevel from 1 to 2 degrees?
