I'm so confused. The ski tuning world has gone nuts. What is a RECREATIONAL SKIER to do?
My fastest 'slicker than snot' skis have never been stone ground, but have been sanded, rilled, wire brushed and metal scraped. They have many hot solid and liquid wax cycles with scraping, brushing (including metal) and they scream.
SkiVisions is now making a new file base flattening tool and advocates no wax. The crazy Swedish nords are not waxing, but metal scraping their bases......the wax companies have zillions of dollars in testing and WC results to back their products and offer 97 flavors of wax to make you scream down a hill...if you scrape and brush....or not and simply rub on or blow it all off and go have fun. Another tuning tech has now achieved God like status at EpicSki.
My little brain is about to explode. I think I better go breath some wax fumes and then go skiing.......after a round of golf first. Which club should I use if I'm inside 80 yards to the pin.......the horror....the ball might not go in the hole if I use the wrong club.!
Very well stated Alpinord! That's it exactly. We are not all racers! We just want a good glide. As I said, there is more than one way to skin a cat!
A rec. skier should use a "all temp" Graphite wax like Dominator Zoom, or someting to that effect. Be good!
