so i bought a new pair of AR6s this year for a huge deal ($200)
so first question
1.what bindings do u recommend me buying for my AR6s? ...im looking for light or durable...mostly on the like side so basically looking at rossis or salomons
2. Where do u recommend mounting the bindings? at true center? is the ski made for true center?
look px12 jib or rossi axail 120
both are lightweight and good durably bindings
dont center mount AR6 simply because it really isnt meant for it
you can if you are hitting the park like every hour you are skiing but if you want to go on groomers and explore a bit i say 2-4cm back from center
I have skied the ar6 at center and at suggested and they are sooo much better of the park at suggested its not even comparable, its like night and day... and even at suggested it still has plenty of tail for switch and is still well balanced... I guess if you don't care at all about out of the park performance then go centered, but if thats the case then you shouldn't have bought the ar6 in the first place... so yeah, go suggested unless your pure park
There is absolutely no difference between the 07, and 08 AR6. The only thing they changed was the graphics and i think they changed the delam problem, but don't quote me on that. Other than cosmetics it's the exact same ski.
me: "you should just say you're 17"
mikey:: "But wouldn't she know when she like (mutters off) downstairs"
me: "You have a small penis, don't you"
miley: "well not very small, but..."
is there a reason as to why most of you would say to mount the ar6 at -1 or suggested or is this just a preference. i'm mounting px12 jibs at true. these would be my pure park / occasional cruise around ski. i've never mounted center, so i'm hesitant.
mounting is all about preference, and what works for you best,
some people will mount at true center or even forward of center,
others will like the recommended mounting point and stick with that.
since you sound like your gonna do alot of park you might want to consider center, -1, or -2
then again it's all preference, and as nomensteven said above, reccomended seemed perfect for him
i have ar6's center mounted for park and i ski pow/steeps all mountain and i dont see the difference it took me only a little while to get use to the centermount but its only a bit different for carving but got use to it
