Allright, I guess I'm gonna just detune the edges a little bit all the way around to have a little of both worlds then. Solid plan or not ?

Why would you round the contact points then ? Sounds like that would really change the way your board reacts without having a lot of benefits on rails and such ?

Allright, finally a solid answer. And would detuning between the bindings have any effect on how my board reacts in turns ? ( I suppose I can also detune nose and tail since they won't ever really hit the snow unless buttering ?! )

So you're telling me I'm not gonna catch edges if I have proper technique without detuning the edges ? I'm just kind of scared to land face first on a rail, lot's of folks told me it's nearly impossible to avoid catching an edge from time to time if you didn't detune/bevel the edges ...
