It has burs because he's just detuned it.
If you use a fine file to begin with then you might not need a gummy stone. Snowboard tools are awfully expensive in the stores, when I bought my base edge guide the shop tried to charge me $50 for a flat bastard file. I went to the local hardware store and bought basically the same thing for $9.99 instead.
Just get yourself a stone or fine file, it's cheap to do, rough edges suck.

Hopefully that made sense

I'd like to detune the tip and tail of my new SL before I take it out this Friday, but I don't have a gummi or diamond stone for smoothing out the burs. Is it necessary to use something to smooth the edge after detuning the tip and tail, or am I better off leaving it as is? Is there anything I can use instead of a gummi or diamond stone to smooth out the edge? Thanks in advance!
