I recently bought Volkl Tigershark 12 PS skies (BTW I love them) and after 2 days of skiing at Hunter this weekend was trying to lightly sharpen the edges with diamond stone and multilevel tool to keep them sharp as I do routinely on all of my skis. To my surprise I had to put 5 degree bevel for side edge to keep the diamond flat to the edges! It did not sound right so, I stopped and went to Volk web and according to Volkl "The factory specs of all adult models are the same. 2 degree bevel on the side edge and a 1 degree bevel on the base edge." Can anyone of the experts here please explain if it is me doing something wrong or did Volkl really went with 5 degree bevel? 3 degree I would not be surprised but 5 ... this sounds extreme to me. And what about their own site claiming 2 degree?
