Atomic Blogs Mounting
Hey NS, i search barred for mounting on Atomic Blogs but came up empty handed. What are your thoughts on where to mount the Atomic Blogs?!
I read a review on TGR that said that -2.5cm is a little to far forward. I'm not strictly gonna be riding pow though, so my first instinct is to go team recommended (which is -2.5). I'll be riding everything on the mountain, from groomers, side country to backcountry and tree's. Not so much park, because I have different sticks for that. So a center mount is pretty much eliminated as an option.
I'm 180cm (5'9/5'10) and weigh about 182, talking about the 185 blog.
2.5 is recommended for a reason. a lot of the guys on tgr seem to like a more traditional mount on lots of skis, probably because many like to ski with old school technique (not hate, just an obsevation) and so they like to be a bit further back to have more tip to drive.. if thats how you ski then you might want to consider -3.5 maybe.. if you ski with a more centered stance then go 1.5-2.5 back..
however lots of people have said the bentchetler skis pretty poorly further back than 2.5 and it has a similar sidecut, so i'd be wary of going further back than -2.5..
there's a certain point where it neither looks good nor functions properly...that's when you know you look steezy - no_steeze

anyone else that has skied the blog maybe?
I am a tall guy (6'3", 180 pounds) and i have skied the 177 with griffons at center mount. not for park, just a small, jibby pow ski. If you want to throw them around, and ride switch a bunch in pow, put them center
did u ride them in the pow? no-tip dive?
well it wasnt the deepest conditions, but they were stable and fun. Center mount is the future!!
So i mounted them -2.5 on the team recommended line. Wasn't a whole lot of info on mounting these out there. Lots on the chetler's though so I kinda went by that info since they are so similar.
yeah, i've skied both those skis at center, and they are really similiar in terms of flex so for mounting that should work well! enjoy!
second pair of blogs. have them mounted -2 from the team line w/ fks 14.
i ski solitude and the bird and use these as my drivers.
i wouldn't recommend mounting center on these if you plan on skiing lots of pow, the tips dive a bit if you do.
would putting them -2.5 or more back from true center affect their switch riding and park alot?

Centre mounting minee.
SHAM WOW HAS NOTHING ON ME
Will mounting my blogs 3cm back from the true center be enough to stop tip dive?
