Question detuning never summer rocker?

Hey guys,

I have heard that it is good to detune a bit the whole effective edge of the Lib Tech BTX so that it is not too grabby. Is it important to do same with the Never Summer rockers? I just ordered the Revorlver-R and wonder if I should get some gummy stone as well to mellow the edge a bit?
thx

I detuned my tip and tail, and came in about an inch on the effective edge. But i left the entire length of it completely untouched. It's feels great, not too grabby.
