Dunderflipno. some people are dumb as shit and will mount your skis on the factory recommend if you ask for center tho. apparently "center" is supposed to be the center of directional camber or smth and not the measured center of the ski shrug emoji
crawleyTrue there is actually effective edge center and running length center, and recommended center. Long story short, if a shop is mounting your skis, make sure that you mark exactly where you want your midsole to line up for them. Words are hard.
crawleyFinally, there is the longitudinal inertial center. If you really care about your knees and lose sleep over tenths of millimeters, you'd actually find the balance point of the ski and call that inertial center. If you are doing that you also are probably spending sleepless evenings thinking about where on the boot you should be aligning these marks anyways, because using the midsole line on your boot probably doesn't optimize your anatomical dreidel-ness.
