Default Bevels and edge tuning V2.

so this weekend is my local mountains open house/pick up your season pass day. Its also when i am goiong to get everything on my stairmaster done for this season. I know that some of you all are/were just as confused as i am about what would be this best thing for me and my board. I ride about 60/40 park/groomers. I ride the east coast man made snow and ice crap.

So im wondering what i need to do to make my board fit my needs...
**I think this is what i need to do, make changes as needed. (learned from reading the countless other threads about this all summer)
-totally detune tip and tail
-leave the effective edges alone, even thought the stairmasters edges came razor sharp right out of the box.
-88/2 degree bevel

Im looking for any advise i can get!

Thinks

Look into the links they provided you.

For that board I used a -88/2 setup myself last season and was happy with the results. It felt loose and not catchy at all without sacrificing edge control on sketchy terrain. Definitely detune the tip and tail of the board.

I'm looking into getting a 87/-3 with the board this season to see how it works.

It's not being lazy, trust me I read wolfs writing. That's whee I made a lot of decisions from. I'm just looking to see how people that got their boards done and have been able to rise them like everything. I really appreciate the help and though it may seem I'm not a noob to forums.
