tomPietrowskiWhat is the actual ski? The crj? Generally center mount will only really be good for park. It can work for all mnt but generally won't be as good as a ski mounted slightly back. For powder I don't think center is good at all. It's much better I think to be a few cm back for pow but it will all depend on the ski. Some skis will be designed to be ski centres and they still may be good all mnt. If your unsure just wait until the start of the season and demo the ski you are interested in. One of the great things with demo bindings is you can change the mount point too to find out where you want them mounted.
tomPietrowskiWell what is the build of the ski? What is the core? Are there any laminates? Is it sidewall/cap/50-50? All those factors will detrimental what size you will want.
ski_da_powthey were uwmh sidewalls, 2.5 mm edges and a wood/maple core
tomPietrowskiSo full sidewall? Does the core hav any laminates or just a plain wood layup. Also does the core have any flex change throughout it length. If you really can't demo you need to try to find out as much about how the ski is built to try and gain an idea of how it will ski.
Scotty_BoyThey will feel poppier and more responsive. More alive so to speak.
ski_da_powYES! those are the skis! have you ridden them?
Grizzly.Buttahi recently email one company about skis that were meant to be center mounted. what they said that was if you ride park 90%+ of the time go center, if not go farther back. then they said if you ski no park go -4. i told them i do pretty much everything then they told me that -2 would be the money spot for all mtn. the ski I'm talking about isn't the kitten skis but its still close to the same concept.
ski_da_powim not sure, what will a stiffer ski feel like compared to a softer one??? my crjs are quite soft in the noses, and way stiffin the back, so i know how that feels
