Where should you mount truly symmetric pow skis like the line pollards opus or the 4frnt yells for example??
I can only speak on the Lines. Those I would go dead center or -2. My Bacons are dead center and I love it that way... I would say it's more of a personal preference when you're talking about a more quiver-like ski. If you're on the fence with the the Opus, I'd go -2.
Long days and pleasant nights.
only centre mount if you're going to be riding switch or landing switch a fair amount of time
Wu tang is not for the children, Wu tang is for everyone
Center mount them only if you're hitting backcountry booters and landing in pow switch all the time. Otherwise go -2. It'll be much easier to float and charge steeper lines.
Ive got a pair of hellbents centered, really fun, but doing slashing turns isnt such a pleasure when you have that much tail. If i could choose again, id go -2
i would personally mount both at -1 or -2 for all mountain riding, or center if you are constantly landing switch in pow. -1 would be good

With the yle in the 187 its not truly symmetrical even though when you look at the sidecut numbers. You get some nose dive when mounting recommended though. I bought my yles as demos and the demo binding was mounted at recommended but I put my own bindings on and had mounting issues trying to put on my bindings and ended up 2cm back from recommended and they skied much better. Still ski switch just fine at 2cm back too.
