I think I need to find another shop. I definitely rather bevel the base than dull the whole edge. I don't want to feel like I'm on a board that won't carve or something.

Thanks again for the help everyone
mine are beveled at like 2 degrees and i dont catch my edge on a box or rail unless i tried to if you land flatbased like you should ur fine. and as carving goes? i go to a towrope place where i live and you know how we are in the park with tow ropes... we just cut right in line. i could carve so hard that i go straight up the hill a little bit and go as fast as the tow rope and catch it. im tellin ya go for a 2 degree bevel its not gonna harm your carving very much... your edges will be sharper and theyll be easier on boxes. otherwise find another shop or try dulling them out...

I have a 2 degree bevel straight from the factor and it works out fine for carving and boxes.

I would suggest you 2-3 degrees if you wanna hit the rail while still riding down hill full speed.
More than 3 deg and you might not feel it good while turning.
Basically when your deck comes from the factory, the edges are very sharp and you should definitively sharp them starting from the nose and tip which are not necessary for turning.

Check out this vid, it's a nice introduction:

hey i just got a butron retro twin there n used it for about a week. bit of a tuning noob here but written on the board is what i think is the bevel and the edge angles but im not sure because it says base; 2degrees, edge; 0degrees... is this 'base' angle the bevel or what? and im guessing that the 'edge' angle is the angle of the verticle part of the edge? i thought burton didnt bevel their boards etc?? cheers
