Have you beveled your rocker? or banana?

I was just wondering if you guys have beveled your rocker, or banana, or reversed camber snowboards, and to what degrees. I ask this because I'm wondering if the banana shape and the bevel angle would affect the edge on the snow.

It's basically just a shorter more compact version of a normal tool.

Yeah but at least they made it easier then trying to use a full size edge tuner on a magne-traction or banana-traction board.

I wasn't insinuating anything. Just describing it for the OP. I need to get one too.

LOL, I meant putting a bevel on the rocker boards, like 1 degree on the base, and 1 degree on the side, or 2 degree base, 2 degree side; not just sharpening or tuning the board. I'm wondering if the rocker shape has effect on how the board holds an edge or behaves with the bevel degree compared to the traditional camber.

I have a reverse camber neversummer and i put a 2 degree bevel on it. I rode it one day without any detuning or beveling (I couldn't wait any longer) and I could definetely feel a difference. The 2 degree makes it a little harder to the edges into the snow. Going down the slope you won't feel that much of a difference, but at slow speeds is when (at least that is when I do) it gets harder to get your edge down and grip.

I apologize if that is not the clearest description/summary but I hope you got the gist of it.

I've never heard of this, at least how you're describing it. Can you go into more detail? A 2 degree bevel on the base? and then on the side...the side of what? Are you talking width-wise? Color me confused... I'd be interested to learn more about this.
