I took my bacons in to have them mounted earlier in October. The day after I dropped them off the girl calls me and asks, "so when you say an inch and a half (+3.5) back from the true center, you mean the line on the ski where it says mid sole?"
I say, "Yes, and please do not confuse this with +3.5 from the midsole line. I like to ski backwards and like the extra tail. Mount them on the suggested line."
She sounded pretty skeptical but agreed to do it. I do not know how anyone could be confused by clear instructions. Sure enough, I pick up my skis and they are mounted way the hell back, like +7 from true center, total free ride Seth Morrison stance; exactly +3.5 or 4 from the midsole line. Goddammit. Unfortunately, I was in a huge rush and have just noticed this tonight, after picking them. The shop I go to has always been really chill and helpful, and I tried to give clear instructions but they totally f'ed me on this one. I have seen this happen to lots of other kids on NS and I even tried to prevent it.
I would be okay with it but I am pretty sure having the skis mounted that far back will mess with the whole design of the ski, elliptical sidecut and butter snowboard feel. Can anyone confirm this? Also, should I go back to the shop and demand a remount or something? Thanks NS.
