You've got to give something up to get something in return. If you want to ride rails, you have to detune. Otherwise you will catch your edge, and getting thrown to the ground from the top of a rail is not fun. You'll obviously lose grip on hard pack, but I find your edges have an insignificant impact on landing jumps. Your boards edge profile would have more effect on your landing than the sharpness of the edge itself.
