East Coast - Detuning tip nad tail

I have read ALL the detuning posts and still am not sure what I should do as far as detuning the tip and tail (not efective edge) of my board.

Since I do mostly groomers and the snow is hard packed and icy (half the time) should I still detune? Every once in a while I catch an edge and practice my "humans can fly" routine. I just thought I screwed up my turn and it was all my fault but it seems to be maybe I could have saved myself some of thes times by detuning the tip anad tail.

So should I get a metal file and dull the edges? I ran my finger (from base of board) and the edges are quite sahrp ( 08 Never Summer SL).

So Yes or NO on the detuning?
