A lot of people parrot stuff. Detuning the nose and tail will do little for 95% of riders... even park riders because they aren't good enough for it make a difference. I rode over 15 years and detuned the tips on one board and it was barely a difference.
You have to realize 99% of the people on this forum are not very good (i.e. anyone who describes themselves as an intermediate or less) but they like to act like what they think a expert park rider would do.
I rode a proto ct on spins and and board slide with out touching the edges.
