I'm pretty sold on this whole tuning deal, and I'm planning on ordering some tools in the next few days. From what I've learned from this forum, proper edge care, base care, and waxing is a proven method for making skis faster, and I guess I buy the explanation that brushing the wax textures it to reduce surface-tension-drag. My question is why wax is necessary at all. Why don't the manufacturers make the base of the ski do what the wax is doing?
