Mounting Question - Reference Points
I just got 06/07 Scratch FS WRS skis and i'm going to be mounting them soon
Last year I rode K2 PE's at core center and I wanted to mount them at the same place on these new skis.
We all know K2 has funky measuring and reference points for mounting, so do you know what would be the equivelant of the K2 core center mounting point on my new Scratches? Please specify if you are giving me the + __ measurement from the "standard" or "modern" line. Thanks guys.

one MOMENT please.
come on guys...try to help me out here with the original question...yes i know everyone says dead center and -2, but i'm trying to figure out where the equivelant of the k2 "core center" mounting point is on my scratches.
first see if you tip and tail are the same height, if so, measure to dead center, it should be the same as running length center. then make a mark with a pencil or something and measure the distance between core and the make you made.
if the tips are not the same height, measure center between the points where the skis contact the ground. then proceed to follow the same intructions as in the previos paragraph on the next ski, then marking the skis at the place at which you woud want to mount.
How's about I come over there and you lemmee rub yo butt?
I'm not positive but I think K2 'core center' is about 2 cm back from true, maybe 3. If you have a pair of public enemies handy, you could just measure those......... or go to a shop near you that carries them.
Ok I think I have this figured out...from searching back I read that on my Rossignol Scratch FS WRS skis that True Center is +7cm from the "Modern" line.
I am 99% sure that True Center on every ski is measured the same.
K2 True Center is +10.5 (using their own mounting reference points) and core center is +7.5. The difference being -3cm from true center.
I assume this would translate into +4cm from the "Modern Line" on my Rossis giving me the same mounting point as what "core center" was on my K2 PEs.
