JibbaTheHuttTownsend says he mounts his QSTs dead centre, about as directional of a ski as you'll get. His reasoning is that it makes it more balanced in the air and he likes a longer tail to rely on when landing big cliffs.
My Kore 105s are mounted about 4cm forward of rec, just feel they suit my style of skiing more at that point. I think so long as you're not miles past camber centre you'll be fine further forward
CalumSKIshould you mount center on catamarans or naw
skiP.E.I.I have a pairr of pre-ufo lib techs mounted dead center for playfulness and landing/skiing switch in pow, which they do very well. I don't find it hurts the float a huge amount tbh, but I never had pow skis before these. Also they are 191s, so even centered, they have a decent amount of nose. I like the extra tail length for touring as well, since there is more surface area to grip when on your heels ascending. Kick turns are kind of a pain with the long tails though.
HelzoI have never had any powder ski before so as you, so I think that I will mount them on -2 or near there(that's pretty close to dead center), I'm very used to park/buterry skis
i think im gonna mount mine at around -2 or -2.5
HoelThe Chetlers work wonderfully at -3, still super easy to flick around. Especially the new ones, as they are so light.
SkylineGTR_R32I would mount at the factory designated point. It also depends on the amount of tail rocker the ski has. You don’t want to do what I did: I mounted my K2 Pettitors -4 and they ski great but in powder if I get just a little back seat they wash out.
