Detuning between bindings

anybody here do this and notice a difference when freeriding?

I have a freeride board that I won't go near the edges on, and then a smaller flexy fresstyle board that I decided to dull the edges in the middle, about a 7-8" span, not getting with in 4" of my bindings on either side. I plan on using this board to master boardslides with, but I still like to use it for goofinf around blues and little tree runs on, small jumps, etc...now I am nervous I might notice a slight freeride handling sideeffect. looking around online, I saw mixed reviews about detuning between bindings and if it was noticable when freeriding. anybody here have experience?

I took the bite out of my edge between both contact points. At first I noticed it; it felt like I was slipping when I was riding. I just got back into boarding after 7 years, so that may have played a part. The 2nd time when I was riding it felt like there was some slipping too. Now, I almost wonder why it felt like that. I don't notice it at all, but that probably has to do with myself changing my riding subconciously to adapt to it. It hasn't affected my freeridng yet, and I'm gonna take it out in some icy conditions tomorrow, down some blacks, and get back to you on it.

I would never completely round out the edges. but just enough detuning to take the bite out works perfectly fine so far for me-no hang ups and rails, and not as adversely affected.

well, i just got back from a week riding in colorado. we got zero snow so there was some hardpack and patches of ice. The board did fine on blues and blacks, but I think i was getting a little slip. Hard heel edge stops took longer it seemed like.

Sorry, ended up having an accident at work-concussion. Pretty much ended my season in Ontario. But yeah, you'll notice a little slip, but you get used to it. Nothing really detrimental. I think I'll be doing some detuning between the bindings on every board I take onto rails in the future.
