Someone recently told me that varying the base edge angle can have a positive effect on the skis turning ability. Specifically, he suggested a 0.5 degree bevel throughout all but the last 5 or so cm of the base edge (that contacts the snow) at the tip and tail, and 0.7 degree bevel in the last 5 cm of the tip and tail. He suggested that this provided smoother turn initiation /reduced tendency to overly hook up the edges. Has anyone tired this type of edge angle? Is this little bit of extra work worth the time? Or this just another oddball opinion that I don’t want to try?
