What about skis with rockered tips/tails?
How much tip & tail edge should be detuned: camber ski vs rocketed skids?
What's typical for: SL, GS, all mountain & powder.
I've even read about edge tuning with varing levels of sharpness: sharpest under foot with less going
towards the tip & tail.
Had a smilar question here in Gear a month ago and received no answers except from Alpinord/Slidewright owner. Basically to test them out, so heres what I did to my S7 Rockers 188 cm.
the conventional cambered middle I did base 1 degree and side 2 degrees. Tip I detuned both edges 15 in. back measuring from center of tip to 15 in, measuring on the bottom flush against the ski. I picked this 15 in by laying ski's on my granite countertops in the kitchen and finding visually where the rockered tip toouched/or ended. Then I deturned 3 in. short of this spot - which was 15 inches. The tails I detuned 12 inches up using the same formula.
Have skied them 4 days on groomed and boot deep powder and chopped up powder and like them very much, think I will stay with this formula unless someone comes up with something I think may be worth trying.
