Ok, I've been lurking around here for a while, and now I have a question so here goes my first post.
I've just gotten into doing my own tuning this year, and I was just waxing my new skis (Head Monster im82s if it matters) and saw something somewhat troubling. After making the second pass with the iron, the pattern of the edges was visible in the wax. I'm referring to the zipper like teeth that attach the edges to the rest of the ski. I don't think the iron was too hot. I had it set between 130F and 135F which is what the wax specified and didn't leave it sitting in one place or anything. The one thing I think might contribute is that the skis seem slightly edge high (don't have a true bar to check it with) which would probably help heat up the edges faster.
I don't think I did any damage. After scraping the pattern was gone and the bases were smooth. It seems like the edge pattern was just in the wax due to uneven heating.
Is this a symptom of a major defect in my new skis?
