Armada ar7 mounting question +k
So how should I mount my ar7's? My last skis were non-symmetrical, like the ar7's, and I had them just a tiny bit back from center for most of their use. I've heard a lot of opinions about center mounting ar7's, but I just want to know if center mounting them messes with the flex pattern and hinders all-mountain versatility. I would basically like the setup that would let me do park and all-mountain the best. Would -2.5 be the way to go? Thanks for the help

Yeah. I'd say -1.5 to -2.5 for all-round use. A bit back for dat carving ability, still close enough to center to get dat rail balance and dat park performance.
My bindings are -1.0 and they're great. I would say that -1.5 or -2.0 would give you great all mountain performance while still giving you a more progressive stance for the park.
I ski the AR7s at -2.5 and never looked back. Love them there.
Mine are at dead center of the ski. It can be awkward at times due to being 2.5 in front of the flex pattern. But they slay the park. And I've actually had a lot of fun skiing all mountain on them. If you went core center. They are actually -2.5 from the center of the ski. Either way they are so fun!
Just remounted mine center, I am loving them so far. Do itt!
I ride for gapers
I have mine mounted center. But I live in the midwest and skis 100% park.
I told her I didn't want to do the project, and she said that she would do the entire thing if i railed her up the ass, smackers and all. ~Midget.
Mounting these for next season..........first thing is they will be my come back ski after an acl reconstruction. I will be back in the park a bit but mainly all mountain to be honest. I would like them to be mounted so i can still spin comfortably but the main use for this ski will be helping me to get back skiing. Any thoughts?
