Center Mount vs. Traditional
So my setup for next year is gonna be k2 recoils (which im real pumped about, you can get em real cheap right now for anyone lookin for new sticks) and some 07ish oldschool trouble makers that my brother gave me, still in pretty good condition. Both of these skis are mounted more traditionally, but Ive been on addicts and then suspects for the past 5ish years which are both pretty much symmetrical. my main question is how different is it to ski switch without a centermount.
you notice it more spinning onto rails than skiing switch, but if its close to center (2.5cm or less) it's not worth worrying about.
It's not that bad. Lots of pros actually ride a bit back from center, and I've even heard of some riding front of center..
You'll get used to riding switch on them, just watch out the first time you spin switch off a hard lip so that you don't catch your tips and eat it hard.
