Basically this is essentially a file to smoothen out the edges of of your snowboard. It does what you want it to do. I was using a regular edger in my tool box before switching to this. This files had definitely made it easier for me. I dont have to apply much pressure as the files does a good enough job with the edges enough. Useful for sharpening edges as well as smoothening out some of the edge due to rock damages. I got this at a local shop for a great price. Definitely something to buy if they has this one sale. This is a must have item if you like to baby your board.
I bought another set of these last week at my local shop and they work great. It is my second pair of them. I have the tool for them so they work great for it. They do a great job at de burring your edges and sharpining them too.
I actually dont use this to sharpen my board edge. I use this more for taking off any rust and sharpening my wax scraper. It doesnt sharpen the plastic scraper as well as the metal edge but its still able to sharpen it well. The one time I used it to sharpen my edge, it worked like a charm! I only had to run it through the edge twice and it got pretty sharp
These files are ideal for those tune ups after a normal day on the mountain. They dont dull easily and the size is nice. However, if you have went a few days or weekends without a little tune up, it becomes time consuming to re-sharpen your edges. Overall, a nice little file, definately worth buyin
I dont actually own the dakine tool that you put these replacement files in, I just wanted the small files to toss in my jacet pocket for any random de-burring through the riding day, you wont even know it is in your pocket
I have a dakine set with these files and they are great. They aren't to soft and don't ware out to fast. It's perfect for getting the burrs out of your board, and it will help you gain control> Highly recommended
I been using a dakine edge tool for a while and even tho they come with two files.. for 3 bucks more you can backups for life.. the files has 2 sides fine and rought with markings so u know which way to use it.
These are good files that can tune or detune a board very well. I have used one of the two so far and it is beginning to get dull after probably the 6-7 time that I used it. Still, the files are cheap and work well so don't hesitate to purchase them
What can I say? It gets the job done, lasts long, and never lets me down. The fact that is so inexpensive and last long has saved me so much money bc I dont need to go to shops for edge sharpening anymore
It fits my one ball jay tuner as well. Not sure what year it is, but it is a black one. You get two files as the picture shows. It doesn't show the opposite pattern on the other side. Instead of the crosshatch, it has just one set of diagonal grooves. Someone mentioned that one is rougher and the other is finer. To me, both sides seem the same. I dont put to much pressure on my tool as the files sharpen my edges enough. For those of you that are looking to just use this by hand and without a tool, be warned. These files are fairly small... they are meant for tuners. You can get a cheap hand file at home depot or perhaps when they are in stock on this site. Oh, and $3 when 70% off?!?! come on. get it
I've had my Demon tuner for a couple of years so the original file on it has long been worn down. Thankfully, instead of going out and buying another tuner, you can get 2 replacements for less than some tuners. The grit is small and sharp and it does what I want
I purchased these files at my local shop to replace my old files in my board sharpener. These files are very good and they get the job done. They keep my board sharp after every ride. If you want to improve your riding experience I highly recomend you buy these.
I have one of these, have for a couple of seasons. It hasn't given me a durability problem, although I suppose I don't use it super-heavily. I love the simplicity - if I'm being good about keeping my boards and skis tuned, I just hit each edge a couple of times with the finer side of the file, wax, and go. I have this with the dakine full kit and definitely some quality gear by them. Highly recommended
I bought these just so I could do little touch up jobs on my edges after a long day at my mountain ( Its really icy so my edges dull alot). Deffinatley not for full sharpening jobs, but if you had that one chip or spot you need to smoothen and sharpen these are great for it
So the file has two sides. One side has a traditional directional tooth and the other a rasp tooth. The rasp tooth is a more aggressive tooth for serious shaping. The directional tooth is a medium tooth maintenance.
I got these because they were only $3, and I have been quite happy with them. The front and the back of each file has a different pattern. One side is more rough than the other, making for a rougher file and one for fine tuning. Not the best file that you can buy, but for the price why not
I got some of these and they work great! They start to get dull after a while, but they work great while they last. I guess that's why they have replacements for em. The replacements are really cheap though, so even when you need to, it doesn't cost much
I use this file to tune the edges on my snowboard and also to file the edges when putting on grip tape on my longboards. Great compact sized file that works well with two different patterns to suit your needs, I highly recommend it
These files are identical to the ones that come with the dakine edge tuner tool. On each file, one edge is cross-hatched and the other has a one-directional hatch at about 45 degrees. I find the cross-hatched side to be more abrasive and good for running the first couple of passes. Then I switch to the single hatch side to clean up the edge. The only downside is that the material hardness isnt very high and thus you will begin to see the wear on the file features dull out after 3-4 sharpening session
Great little files. I'm glad they have replacements as my originals were wearing down a bit. The hand held file is awesome to give you edges a bit of a tune while your on the go or to de-tune them. And they're cheap as chips so why not get some spares.
These replacement files are pretty good. They hold up well when I was sharpening my edges but after about a whole season I could see some wear on them already which isn't that good but for the price I guess I'll just get another pair.
Yeah these are very nice files. I got them with a sharpener and so far I have been very impressed. I have used the files about 10 times on mine and my mates boards and they are starting to get a little dull but still working so all in all they are very nice files highly recommended.
Good cheap replacement files that will fit a lot of different file holders. I use these files for de-tuning friends boards and the occasional edge sharpening. But if I want a good sharp edge, I go to my Swix files
This tool does the work, however the finishing is pretty raw. If you want a better finishing you may want an edge tool with different grit diamond stones. Another problems is that if you sharpen it too often you will wear off the edge. If you want to keep your edges sharp without wearing off the edge you may need a fine grit diamond ston
The Dakine Edge File is easy to use, long lasting, and serves it's purpose for a low cost. However, it's uses are limited w/o the edge tool (which is also limited). The file has two sides each w/a different grade of abrasion; Rough & Fine. It's a good file for basic edge maintenance, but I'd consider something else for more advanced edge tuning, beveling, etc. This is a good purchase if you're starting a basic tuning kit
I found that theses files dull a lot quicker than my original kuu one. I've used it about 6 or 7 times and its developing a grove in both sides. They only cost 3 bucks though so I guess you pay for what you get. Definitely still worth the price. Get them, use them, chuck them..
This file is gonna be good enough for at least about 90% of riders out there. You can get more expensive sharpeners that let you swap out different 'grits' of files, and adjust the angle of the bevel, but unless you're super picky about that sorta thing, this will do just fine. As you can see, the replacement files are inexpensive
This thing is great, I used it to detune my board after some rough days on the slopes. For $3 its a no brainer, you get 2 so keep 1 in your bag just in case you lose the current one. oh just fyi the sides have diff. file patterns, 1 is finer and the other is more coarse I believe
