So I recently picked up a pair of Line Prophet 90s from SierraSkis. Great deal.
I've tried to ski them twice with no real luck. Can't find the edge. I originally thought it might be technique, since these are the widest skis I've been on, but now I think it's the base bevel.
While I don't have a real True Bar, I found a piece of metal that was real close. I also measured on all 4 sides of the bar, so the average at least should be pretty close to reality. Came up with anywhere from 3 to 4 degrees.
I have always tuned my own edges, but left the base edges alone, except for minor touch-ups from rock damage.
So if I were to invest in something like the Ski Visions Base Flattener & a decent base bevel guide, how much work is involved in getting these back to 1 degree? Sometimes I think ignorance is bliss. I have always left the base to a shop that ues a machine. After reading on this forum, I'm hesitant to do that again.
Are we talking hours of work to remove that much base material?
