buttering and park riding

i just ought a proto ct, how is this thing going to handle in the park and doing some buttering on the flats? is it possible to file down the edges a little to make it less "edgy?" or is that a bad idea?

.....Isn't that something you should have asked BEFORE you bought the board

I can butter just fine with razor edges.

Go ride and figure it out for yourself.

if you can butter in general there shouldnt be any extra problem buttering a board like this.

if you want you can take a file to your tip/tail and detune it up until like half an inch or so past the contact points. i do this to any board i get when its new and makes buttering a little less catchy.

theres not much to detuning other then making sure you pull the file in the right direction(not sure if its like that for all files but i have a swix one that can only go in one direction depending on where the threads are pointing). i hold the file at about a 45 degree angle and just do even swipes from the top of the tip or tail down to the contact point then do the same on the other side.

Do yourself a favor, don't go anywhere near those factory edges with a file if you don't know what your doing. Take it to someone who knows what they are doing if you must.

You should have done more research before buying, the proto is an advanced park stick, if you are asking questions about buttering and detuning then clearly you are not hitting the big lines. You would have been way better off with something softer.
