This is great for polishing and not taking to much edge off.

My skis seem to find all the rocks. I use the Green stones to retune. And then follow up with the darker red for a finer tune and lastly with the pink (fine) stones to polish. I don't apply too much pressure (maybe about 5-10 lbs of force or so). I use less force and more reps. Too much force and the ski cuts deep grooves in the stone. I also stop "rubbing" the SkiVisions tool once I feel the stone has stopped cutting. If I rotate and find it not cutting very much, then I consider the sharpening act done. NOTE: this does not make the stone scar go away. It simply sharpens the area so my edge bites the snow. Over time, I find "older scars" do disappear. The directions on the SkiVisions site really need to be followed or you miss the subtleties of how to handle and perceive the feedback from this tool.
I recently had to change the bevel angle of my bottom edge. I used the files that came with the SkiVisions. I tried the green stones for that, but it did not work. Later found on SkiVisions site that you are not to use the stones to change the angle. The files work, but dull quickly. I’m buying the hardens steel skiver and tossing my files. After I beveled the edge, I found the green stone removed the burrs nicely.

The green stones wear extremely quickly and gouges form in the stones. I don't know how one would think this stone is actually forming the ski and not the ski forming the stone. It isn't after several skis this occurs, but after one side of one ski the notch is made. I don't really trust these stones. The ruby stones work very well and hold up nicely, surprised by the lack of integrity of the green stones. I'd recommend a fine file over the green stones.
