    Also on cambered skis running more base bevel from the heel peice back to the tail to give them a more drifty feel but an edge when you need it
    I'm curious what labeling names you will give the two edges? "Burly" and "Slack"? "Bulletproof" and "Powdah"?

    I'd go with "DD's Mom" for the funkosa off trail adventures, "iceman" for the more aggressive tune.

    Heh haven't really thought of giving them names but probably some thing like "these go to 11" and maybe "it snowed!" As mentioned above its more out of laziness.. keep one set sharp and at like a 1/2 or 1/3 if it's really icy.. and the other just factory and mainly free of burrs doesn't ever get sharpened.

    Here's one more for you ungrateful bastids.. run a line of cold(er) wax down along your rear edge when waxing, right where your skis dry out first, it's more durable and gives you a few extra ski days between waxes
    ...tricks deserve applause, style deserves respect

    I've played around with just going ahead and piling in several good waxing sessions of cold(Very Hard) wax(not necessarily flouro quality) when skis are new, then waxing as needed for expected conditions...seems to provide a tougher base. Might play around with a more targeted approach. Nice.

    Dig out one of your old pairs of reverse camber skis and some old binding screws and attach a plastic bucket to back ski tip. Take a nice evening hike or lift ride.

    Place 200g fireworks cake or fountain in the bucket and snug it in with some snow. Light the wick. Ski in front of your friends and listen to them giggle or holler or both.
