Detuning an SL-R
I read through all the posts about detuning, but I'm as confused as ever. I have an SL-R coming, and I know that it comes with a 0 degree base bevel from the factory. I called NS and explained that I'm a lower intermediate rider, and asked what kind of detuning they recommend. The person told me that their boards come ready to ride, and that if I elect to detune, I should just do it to my preferences. My preference is something that's forgiving to someone at my level, but still performs well, but I don't know what that translates to on this board. I'm currently riding a DH, that I believe has a 1 degree base bevel, and when I bought it the shop kid detuned the tip and tail, but to what specs I have no idea. that seems comfortable enough, but i don't really have any basis for comparison, and I have noticed that it doesn't grip well on ice. I'm not going to do any rails/jibs/butters on the SL-R. What do you recommend? I'm going to have my local shop do this for me, but I want to know what to tell them to do, instead of relying on a random shop kid to tell me what I need.
