wolfbackpackSo I've been giving Colorado ski and golf my business for YEARS. Ever since I was a snowboarder. Recently I got a pair of 2012 4frnt YLEs and took them there to get mounted. The suggested mounting point is -3.5 from center. I asked to get them at -2.5 from center and I did not get that. I got a call saying a tech mounted them at dead fucking center. I said that's alright I forgive you if you just remount them at -2.5. They did JUST that. Only they mounted it at -2.5 from the suggested -3.5 so my skis are sitting at fucking -6.0 from the god damn center. That's mounts on a pair of unused fucking skis. They gave me a refund on the mount and a free tune for the year. I'm pissed and don't want to go to them for a 3rd time to fuck them up for the last mount. What the hell should i do?

Spartaseriously... i am confused as to what you want. "just remount them at -2.5" but from where? if you weren't clear as to -2.5 from center and they interpreted it as -2.5 from recommended then this is partly your fault too.
onenerdykidThis is why you need to be EXTRA EXTRA clear with people when talking about where you want your bindings mounted- and I'm not singling you out here OP but everyone who reads this. Center, dead center, sidecut center, recommended, -2.5 from center but still +1.0 from recommended... shit gets confusing for everyone involved.
Wherever there is room for interpretation or where a misunderstanding can happen, there will be mistakes. The only fool-proof way that completely removes a interpretation/misunderstanding of what you mean by "-2.5cm" is to physically mark on the ski (or on tape on the ski) with a horizontal (edge to edge) line where you want the midsole of your boot.
This is the only way to avoid confusion. It also helps to label tips & tails, just to be super extra clear.
