That ski is the shit, seriously the best ski i've been on. I have mine mounted center and -2cm from core and they ski awesome either way, it depends on where you want to ski them. Deeper snow -2cm, all mountain including park, center. Good choice in ski though!
Just because it's symmetrical doesn't mean you have to mount it center... I use it for touring and i wanted a bit more tip. I understand your concern but don't knock it until you try it. Either way they ski awesome.
I've got Liberty LTE's for park, along with 9th Firstbloods. These will be my tree/pow ski. I'll center mount them, because theyre symmetrical and it just makes sense. 104 at the waist be enough for good float? I sure hope so.
Sorry for double post. I'm throwing Look px 18s on them, which I got off GearTrade for 85 bucks. Whats the mounting pattern and its supposedly missing some hardware which they said to be only screws. Anyone know where I can get some to mount the bindings with?
If i were you, i would get them mounted at hood, in the summer there is a shop called mt hood racing center or something like that, the guy there mounts skis for 35 bucks and is legendary, he used to work with all the world cup racers so he has got his shit down, i stopped racing and still bring literally everything to him.
Then why not get an asymmetrical ski? There are alot more choices for asymmetrical skis, so there has got to be one that would suit you as well as the Zero. I have center mounted chronics, which are not symmetric, because there was no symmetric ski that was equal to the chronic in what I was looking for. It makes sense to mount an asymmetric ski center, but not to mount a symmetric ski anywhere but center from my perspective.

they'll lose one of your skis in the mounting process and tell they have to order it from finland which will take 3-5 weeks. it'll be the wrong ski that gets shipped and they'll say they will get it reshipped but they'll forget. you'll call them and ask them about it and they'll say its all good. then when you go to pick it up you'll have two different skis with one pair of bindings mounted for different size feet.

I hear ya, i used to think the same way. I wasn't actually the one that mounted them. I bought them off of a rep after skiing them a few times. It wasn't until i had purchased them that i noticed they weren't mounted center. I know it sounds goofy but i wouldn't have bought them if they didn't ski really well. I have next year's as well and they are center mounted. they both kill it. I think the more knowledge you have a something the more pre-determined you are to judge it, if i would have known that they were -2cm back when i first rode them i would have been the same way, but since i had no idea, i fell in love with how they skied... what can i say, you can't deny love
