SEABURNOh, rad! The blister gear review made it sound like I was gonna ruin the ski by being that far forward. I guess I'll have to take their reviews with a grain of salt... they don't ride switch or get airborne much. (at least those reviewers)
Thanks for the help!
Yeah, Jonathan and Paul are definitely directional skiers so I'm not surprised that they liked the recommended line (or in Jonathan's case, preferred it ~1cm behind the line).
I got on the ski this past spring and thought it felt great at the recommended line (for reference, I'm no freestyle aficionado but like to ski switch and jump off stuff). To me, the sweet spot on the ski felt pretty big, so I'm not surprised Moment's freestyle-oriented riders like it a bit forward. As someone who doesn't spin a lot, I thought the ski felt very balanced and had a surprisingly low swing weight when mounted on the recommended line, but as hot.pocket noted, if you spend a lot of time skiing switch it sounds like going a couple cm forward could work.
I really liked the ski so we're gonna try to get a 2nd look up on Blister this season to offer another perspective.
