i believe every btx board is reverse camber. and i see no benefits of detuning your board. and they don't have continuous metal edges so its kinda hard to.

yes it did feel too "grabby" towards the nose and tail on icey stuff. i could feel it grab and spin me around resulting in me on my back. i just detuned the last 4-5" or so from the end of the metal edge. problem solved.

it does have a continous metal edge when you ride because it flexes when you stand on it. The RC does not stay that way when its being ridden.

edit: sorry misunderstood. I wrap a panzer file in teflon tape and push it at a 45 degree angle in lengthwise mentions.

it has different flex points, and it reacts and unloads its weight differently than a regular camber board. and yes it is just about completely flat when you rid it. Some board are softer different places, this just changes the pattern. Kinda like magnets, reverse polarity is still polarity. its still a magnet

i think sublimes talking about the fact that the edges stop its not full wrap on the skate banna or any mervin board.


i really dont know about detuning the edges though. i thought that the great thing about reverse camber was that you shouldent ever catch your edges on rails and park stuff.

i think grabby spots happen with all kinds of boards and you just use a standard file like you would on any other board.
