Center mounting for dorion pros
I know this is supposed to be in ski equipment, but I need a lot of answers before tomorrow. So, I just got some used 169 Dorion pro 1080's that were previously mounted at the recommended spot. I will use these for almost 100% park, mostly rails in the park and in my backyard too. I'm thinking about center mounting them. Is this a good dession, or should I just mount them at the recommended spot? And how far forward(cms) do I mount them from the line that marks the recommended spot to make it a true center mount? Thanks for the help.
And sorry, again, that it is taking up space in SG, I need some fast answers.
15mm if you want a center mount the only real thing that a center mount will do for you is to allow you to spin at more ease.
just ask the shop guy to mount it at true center. and yes, if you are using it for pure park, go for it. my old 10s are mounted true center and they work quite well.

u idiot...just screw em!
You might find 1 cm back from true center to be better. I can't really back that up though. If they're for park only, you can't really go wrong with center mounting.

You should wait for the VCT's next year, not a re-skinned 1080.
^No, I already have the skis, so it looks like I will mount at true center, but I'm still open to suggestions. Does anyone know where true center is located in relation to the recommended spot?
Thanks for the help.
Measure the ski tip to tail and find the center...
It should be about 7cm in front of recomended point...but make sure someone confirms that?
^thanks, does anybody else know where center mount is in relation to the suggested spot? I measured it, and it was something like 9 cm in front of it, and I'm thinking that can't be right, anybody, andbody????
Sometimes manufacturers place the core center mount indicator in a spot that really isn't true center. There is some discrepancy between core and true center, and I think true center is the measured center, core center is a little off. Try to balance the ski on your finger, and find the balance point, mount like 2 cm back from there, that should be good.
