These are the only stones I bother using anymore with the Ski Sharp tool, which I've had for years. The finer stones might be appreciated by racers and people who ski a lot in dry, powdery conditions, but these coarse stones quickly provide a great, sharp edge that I find perfect for local snow conditions. I recently bought a 2nd set as a backup for when my original set needs reconditioning and I don't want to take the time to do that before resharpening my edges.
Good stones. I does a good enough tune for skiing in CO. They break easier. When they get thinner from redressing the stone.
These American made tools work the better than any other.
works like a cross between the ruby stones and a file.
I have been using the ski visions system for 16 years. A great,easy system of keeping skis tuned just got better with the green stone. Quick and accurate. Who needs to pay lots of money for a shop tune when this gives you what you want at a fraction of the price.
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.
