Default Hopefully detuned edges

Ok so i ran the file around the edge of the tip and tail and wondering if theres a specific way to tell if the edges are detuned enough. So that i dont catch an edge riding next time.

You ran a file around the tip and tail specifically or did you get the contact points?

And you should be able to tell when the edges are detuned.... Go at em little by little and you will feel when they're suddenly not sharp anymore. You gotta be really careful to not detune to much, so rub a little while and then feel the edge with your finger. Use an un detuned part as a reference as to what your trying to avoid as far as sharpness goes, if that makes sense....

Sorry I rode Beaver Creek all day and I'm kinda tired so my sentences are probably getting harder to understand... I'm going to bed

Detune until you round the edge...if your not sure check out some youtube videos...I filed the hell out of the edge from contact point to contact point on the tip and tail. It made all of the difference in the world, the board is no longer grabby on flat and initiates turns much easier. The edges that should be detuned are basically useless so don't worry about hurting the board by over detuning.
