You are a ski doctor.
I have One Life's center mounted, and I suffer from riding lazy at times, burning thighs, and as always with rockered skis I have to remain pretty damn conscious of my edges while ripping down on hardpack so nothing catches.
But of course these hardpack surfaces are not stressing my tips.
You go on to say that it doesn't put enough emphasis on the tip and I have had "limited tip control" at times and had to put more emphasis on ripping with my tails.
I literally went to the gym 5x/wk for 2.5 months leading up to skiing in Utah for my 2nd out west trip. So we're talking 2k vert max kinda stuff. But anyways even with all the working out I was finally able to not gripe about my legs burning "as much" (realllllllly did help though) and I feel as though I have learned over time (especially toward the end of my like 30th-40th days on OneLife's how to just pretty much rip down anything I can handle "effortlessly".
BUT YOU MAKE ME WONDER. Next time I am out west I am going to demo OneLife's from Causwell and ask for them to mount them -2 back so I can test out just what you are talking about.
I have asked for my OneLife's to be mounted "dead center" wherever the line is or whatever right? But I am not a ski measuring guru and I haven't measured my shit ever. They ride like some center mounted skis that I have learned to slay pow/choppy pow/crud in.
I just have a shitload of Macbooks/Macbook Pro's for sale. Message me.
