This whole tune thing is scary. My new head 78's are in the garage. To think that they might be less than optimal right out of the gate is a pain in the ass. Also, my first experience on my skis could be suboptimal, apparently.
This just seems nuts to me. If they can't tune it, what the hell are they doing over there?
Hopefully they will ski just fine, but i'll get them checked out and set to 1/2 or 1/3.
You really need to make sure that you take them to a place that they know what they are doing. The skies really need a new base grind and going to a 3 degree side usually involves removing just a bit of the sidewall. Here in MA, I leave my tunes up to Mike. He does a fantastic job and does mail orders too.
