Center Mount skis?
I've been looking into switching out my old chronics for some new park skis and have demo'd a bunch of stuff but no center mount specific skis.
My question is do they really make that much of a difference on hill?
im 5' 9", 185 lbs. I mainly jib lots of butters, bonks, and rails and have heard that a center mount ski would really make a difference on the switch tricks and landings (which i have trouble with).
having extra tail does definitely add to stability when taking off and landing switch. You dont exactly need a symmetrical ski to ski park tho. Perhaps look into something that the recommended is -5 like a pipe cleaner or ar6 and mount them at -2.5 so you have the ability to hold an edge and have great all mountain performance while still being able to take off and land switch with stability

it definitely makes a difference in the quickness of your turns. i mounted my skis center at the end of last season and i could turn a whole lot quiker IMO
