Been using these stones for over 10 years, the green ones are great. With a 92deg base tool, can sharpen skis in 2 minutes!
These are average quality ceramic stones. White fine stone is useful and good to have in the tuning box for polishing bases and edges when you want to go the extra effort beyond 400 grit sandpaper to finish edges. I haven't used the green stone at all because it is super rough and looks like it would gouge the edges. I can't see why you would use such a rough stone surface rather than a coarse file or bastard file which for cuts faster and easier to control the uniformity of the cut. The rough green stone surface is more like sandpaper but when I need that kind of surface that is so coarse I just wrap a file in sandpaper. Maybe there is a reason to use the green stone rather than a file or sandpaper that I don't know about, but for now I rate this product 4 stars for the white fine stone and 2 stars for the green stone = 3 stars overall.
Both stones are very high quality and if used in conjunction with the correct bevel tool (and maintained properly) will service edges for several years. After each day of skiing I use the ceramic for a quick side rail touch up. Use the green stone first if a deeper hit was encountered.
The green sharpening sotne keeps the metal bar for the ski visions base flattening tool like new. With a coarse diemand sharpener, the greenstone is easy to refresh sso I get a lot of sue out of the greenstone inserts in the ski visions edge sharpener. It's worth watching the videos by Mark Sewall to get the most out his products.
These stones make tuning fast and easy!
I have full sets of both Moonflex diamond stones and SVST ceramic stones, and while these stones have their place on the podium, sharpening and polishing takes a lot of time. For the person that wants to spend more time skiing than sharpening and polishing, this two stone system can't be beat. The system is economically priced at $35 and gives results similar to 400 to 600 grit diamond stones. I ski the East, and the finish on the edge is more than adequate for anything I ski.
Use the stones with Beast and SVST guides. Like all the information that's on skivisions site (and Tognar's) and have the diamond stone to resharpen the green stone. The combo works great, and they are easy to refinish after several uses. For the non professional user, they are a great way to go.
I liked the results of the polishing stone.
The stone does groove immediately which makes it good for only about four uses before I need to throw it awaya. Could be a harder material.
I've had the past 3 generations of stones and use them with SVST shims to tune my kid's race skis and the rest of the family's skis and snowboards. I do like that there is only one stone for sharpening and one for polishing, and these two do a fantastic job. The only complaint on the green stone is it tends to drop metal shavings onto the base/tool more than the ruby stones did in the past. You just have to be more diligent not to go over the same section of edge more than twice without wiping the shavings off the ski base. Thanks Tognar!
