Default Detuning Magetraction questions

Hey there,

Just purchased my wife a new Lib tech TRS and read a few comments about some finding the magnetraction a bit too much, out of the box.
Just a quick background, she is coming from an aggressive camber board so not needing or looking for catchfree so thats not the goal, just want it to be rideable (which maybe it is out of the box compared to aggressive camber board? idk?) I don't expect to need to blunt the heck out of it, I guess is what I'm saying.
I see Libtech sell tuning tool but very little around on info I could find. Have people with magnetraction baords mostly found the need to detune from factory, and if so, how did you do it?, just blunting tip and tails with regular file or getting edge bevel of a couple of degrees off the base say? taken to store? or can you do this with their tuning tool yourself (set bevel angles that is or does it just give a straight 90 degree?).
Just wondering what type of de-tuning you did and what felt good to many people (obviously understand everyone has different preferences), but if a I get a few saying the same thing will give me a good starting point.
Any info would be great.

thanks,
