I just came back from putting 650 miles on my 09 Apex LTX with new Yami Tuner skis with 2" and 4" carbides. I wish I could say great things about these ski's but unfortunatley I cannot. The darting was better than stock but not nearly as good as my stock skis with Bergstroms. The first 20 mins into the ride I had a two foot rooster tail coming off my right ski. Somehow the middle outside edge of the ski beneath the spindle was missing a chunk the size of a quarter. I have no idea what I hit but in 35 years of sledding I never lost a chunk of ski on a non-leading edge.
I would like to hear some results from the populace on these new skis and your carbide set. I hate to piss away dead presidents on a replacement ski and another four carbides. Anybody else try these new skis and what are your thoughts and suggestions?
Thanks for your time

i love the tuners...but like you was running oem yamaha 4" and 2" after 20 miles the carbide was completely broken out of the 2'', then after 100 miles the 4'' were also broke out, (conditions were good too) so my buddy at powersports unlimited, warranteed them.... he got me 4'' and 4'' woodys..... 450 miles on them, they still look good, but they wear in the back where there is no carbide or wear there should be a flat carbide pad... I have noticed some small dents and chunks, but i paid $59 a ski so im not really pissed
