Yeah... DPS responded already and mentioned that. They were going to send me some kind of "polishing pad". I guess I might try that if it worked well from the beginning. Performance for me didn't deteriorate, it has been about the same=not good. I'll see if Level Nine or DPS has any recommendations.Now that said it will not prevent your bases from drying out, in fact they will dry out with Phantom and you will need to grind them periodically.
Just bought another pair of skis this week and won't get Phantom on the new pair for sure.
