Mounting advise for lib tech freeride nas
I just bought a pair of 188 lib tech freeride nas skis and I'm wondering where to mount the bindings. The mark that lib tech put on the skis for center mount look pretty far back. Have any of you guys owned a pair of these and tried mounting them in front of the center mount mark? Also if anyone has mounted them at center how do they ski? Are they hard to control switch? Thanks for the advice!
I've owned two different pairs of 188cm NAS Freerides, one with standard camber, and the second with Recurve. Both pairs were mounted at the recommended mark, and I enjoyed how they rode for my all mountain ski. I actually thought they skied switch pretty damn well considering the traditional mount, even better then some of the more center mounted skis I have been on.
The recommended mark usually says something like "Mount here, or don't." I know people have gone forward of the mount, and even at center on these skis. It's really up to you and what you intend on using the skis for.
I have the 2012s and mounted them at the sweet spot. For the love of all that is good in this world, please don't mount forward. The magne traction is designed around that line. Don't mess it up! Im and they do ski switch pretty well at the recommended line.
Yeah that's what I was thinking with the magnatraction and all I thought mounting them forward would probably screw that up. So just to clear it up you mounted them on the line where it says mount boot center near dent...correct?
New libs have a little graphic with measurements marked out and recommend mounting points. Older ones have a dent in topsheet and says mount near dent...or don't. I have 188 fr mounted 4cm forward of dent, its still looks a little back from center and skis great.

Going for 0 Karma, please help, fucktards.
I mounted mine where it says "sweet spot"
