I purchased a used 2002 Grand Touring 600 that's ready to rock n roll . . . just waiting for snow. Turns out the previous owner swapped out the original Flex skis for Precision dual carbide skis. A bit of research has me concerned that these are not the best fit for a GT (darting, heavy steering push in turns, poor control in powder). Most of my riding will be groomed trail though not exclusively.

Should I keep the precision?

Install an aftermarket center carbide runner to eliminate darting (Jagged Edge)?

Find a used set of Flex?

Thanks!

Haven't tried the center carbide on them but can tell you snowtrackers work great and the center rod should accomplish the same results , eliminate darting.

Got rid of the (IN)Precision skis on every sled I had, even the wife hated them, and went with the Flex or something else. In looser snow they float too much and never gave you any positive feeling that you were in control other than going in a straight line.......

I took off my flex skies for precision skies . Both me and my wife have precision skies . Darting ? Never these are amazing . %99 no darting the other %1 is if you follow someone else who had precision skies and the trail Harden up than its like your on train tracks . They will follow those ruts . Other than that I drive with one hand alot of the time

i put the precision skis on mine,best thing i ever did,and like zr 580 said the only time i found darting is with following other precision skis, i think the length of carbides you put on is important too. i found 6" to work for me

I put precisions on my sle touring..best thing I ever did for that sled.

They seem to work great on s, f and zx chassis. imo

I took the precisions off my revs

Put on pilots.. best thing for a rev. imo

btw.. I would like to try flex ski on my rev.. if I could find some good ones. lol

When I broke the left mounting bolts on my Simmons(same as Precisions) skis and went back to my Flex skis I added the Woodies Doolie carbides and that made a huge difference for the Flex ski!! No darting at all.

Precision skis were excellent for me with two exceptions, following another ser of precison skis or loose snow.

Just run what ya got and make decisions to spend $$ after you log some miles. Really depends on how you ride. The precisions actually done ok on zx sleds.

It seems that many don`t like precisions on the "rider forward" (rev) type sleds, I have no opinion on that.
I believe precisions on "S" or "ZX" chassis sleds are great. Of course still depends on conditions. Personally I would leave the skis as is on the touring sled above.

Really appreciate the input - thanks a TON all! Will definitely keep Precision skis and log miles on before making any decision to swap them out.
