4frnt vandals Mounting center vs mounting boot center
I just bought 2019/20 4frnt vandals. I was going to mount them true center but then the guy mounting them told me I shouldn't. He said there was a friend that came in last week And was adamant about mounting them Center, She came back and said that she felt really unstable. (No ideal what skies she was on) His point was every ski is different He would always mount boot center. My thing is I ride park a lot And have always mounted ski center. I don't wanna be unstable But I don't want my tips to be way out in front of me. Does anyone have the skis and are mounted ski center? Does it work good?
I always mount 1cm back from dead center.
I feel like spinning at -1 cm is pretty much just as stable as dead center but the ski will track significantly better on the snow being a little bit back from dead center. Im going to mount my next skis at 2 cm behind dead center because the rocker at the tip of the ski is longer than at the tail.
The recommended is pretty damn close to center. I always recommend mounting on the line. The skis literally developed around that mount point.
Mine are True centre and they ski fine
All times are Eastern (-4)
