Line blend mounting point
hi just got my blend where should i mount them for best butter experience
You actually don’t mount blends. The bindings make it harder to butter so most people just permanently glue their boots to the skis for optimum buttering. Check out gear talk theres countless threads on how to do it
+80 cm from center: permanent nose butter
I had a pair a few years ago and had them -2cm from center and they kicked ass. Probably my favorite ski I've ever had.
But fr tho it really depends on what kinda skiing ur gonna do. If ur in the park all day, you really can’t go wrong with the center mount but honestly if ur spending any time outside the park id probably say either -2cm or wherever they recommend. It would be a shame to mount such good all mountain skis centre if ur actually riding some pow/mountain. Centre mount will really effect skiing performance because you aren't mounting the bindings with the sidecut of the ski, making turns less natural. Also keep in mind im no ski mounting expert so don’t make ur whole decision based off my dumbass
Mount the bindings on the bottom of the ski, at factory recommended. It provides optimum levels of swerve.
Every pair my brother and I owned were mounted center. Some people switch it up, but I feel this is best for the blends. They are very soft skis so having as much ski as possible in both the front and back of your boot is a good idea. Thats if you plan on skiing/landing switch often. I feel mounting is mostly preference/what you are use to, but thats what I go with!
