    I got some more from this season, but it's been like two months and the guy still has not made the video!
    Got some good knuckle air for him too!
    He said he wanted to make it, so I wait. :doh::daffy::doh::popcorn::doh:

    Jacques, Bend to Jackson is only a one day drive. Find a buddy next Feb and make him/her drive you over for the next PugSki National Gathering. We need your video stoke:D

    Couple of things, you’re only a few years older then me. :cool:

    Second, even though I raze @Jacques on some of his postings, make no mistake, what he us doing is on NON twin tips. This folks is edge feel and balance. Share your base and side bevels so that most understand how difficult this is.

    His other posting....well gotta keep razing you ;).

    Keep it up old man.

    I use 1 degree base bevels. And either a 3 or 4 side bevel.
    Those Ficher's I believe were both 1 & 3. Next season they will be 1 & 4.
    If you look closely at the video, the tune specs are written on the Dominator decals.

    THIS!

    For the thread regarding bevels, here is a good example of what proper balance and edge skills make, while allowing aggressive bevel set ups.

    Best of both worlds.

    I have another video with a 1 & 4 tune. I'll see if I can find it.
    I like a 1 base, but after some time it will grow! Although I do a lot of flattening with the steel scraper.............sometimes a grind is called for!
    Okay I found it. No huge edge angles in my skiing here, but the 1 & 4 works good for high angles.
