ASAPCarterI’d say mount them dead center but that’s just my personal preference so take it for what it is.
abar.-2.5, def don't do true center if you want to ski 50/50 and haven't skied park before
eroseI get the idea on box and rails, but would it affect jumps and such other than just the difference in swing weight? Thanks again!
eroseDon’t think it would have too much affect on rails? Thanks again!
Mr.LumpyjumblesI mounted -2 on my chronics and wouldn't do it any other way. I'm in the park at least 50% of the time and I find that -2 is a good balance for park and all mountain skiing. I've never ridden center mounted so I really don't have anything to compare to, but I have no problems whatsoever with spinning or hitting rails at -2.
AdtmartensIve skied park on -2 for a whole season and they were fine. This year i centre mounted my new skis which is great in the park but in any soft snow it really throws you forward. Thats why i got two pairs of skis but the sweet spot for having only one set of skis is definitely a little back from centre
BibManMount them bitches dead center you won’t regret it
cndrNo experience with the poachers, but I ski the Marksman and Catamaran both at "0" which I think is dead center or super close to it. No complaints on either, granted they are a bit wider than the Poacher for variable snow. I think all of the K2 "team" skis do best at core center, or "0" on the sidewall. Everyone I know on the Poacher skis them there.
eroseDid you have any trouble landing switch? At -2 I doubt it would affect anybody other than a serious freestyle skier. Just out of curiosity. Thanks again!
collin.zecherI know this is going to get a fuck ton of down votes but... bro why don’t you mount them recommend point from the factory and learn how to actually ski on a ski that skis right. And the. Figure out where you want to mount in the future. This shit isn’t just a question you ask and there’s a right answer. It’s all personal preference and if you put you time in on the hill you will be able to answer it in the future. But unless the ski is a symmetrical ski or you are a jib king or land switch all the time, you should be mounting at recommended or a little in front. I read for hours about where to mount my black crow animas. Was set on mounting +1 from recommended... walked into the shop and my buddy goes “sweet, drill them at recommended right?” I hesitated and said yes. I’m glad I didn’t go +1, would of skied like shit I think. Tail is already long enough and going forward destroys float. But ya. So long story short. Learn to ski. Then fuck with your skis.
