I would set aside the notion of "tuning". Or, at least the conventional notion. A da45 should be set up with the pivot pin at the right length. Then you just tighten the cushions down a bit.

Proper pivot pin length is the most important "setup" item. Once you have it, you can't go around tightening or loosening cushions. If you end up with a darty, too responsive skate, the pin is too long. If you get a mushy, not responsive skate, it's too short.

Tuning for how easy things are, are as you already said. Which cushions to use.


Here is some pivot setup info.
