SidehitsJesusYes I know. The great mount point thread. My problem is I’m coming off symmetrical twin tips that I have always rode center mounted. I ski switch consistently just carving around the mountain and I do a park run every 5 runs. Now moving to the nomad 105 and the rec mount point is 9 back from center which is just too far for me when I want to be able to ride switch and hit rails from time to time. Yea yea I could have bought a different ski but these are what I wanted. That being said. Anyone have good experience with a good mount point for these skis that isn’t 9 back? And if you could share some experience with your mount point that would be awesome. Much appreciated.
TwigI rode a pair at -2cm from true, and I still thought they rode nicely there. Yes, you need to ski with a more centered stance rather than driving the tips hard, but it didn't feel bad at any point. If you're used to center, I'd just go there personally but you could go -3 / -4 if you're worried about pow performance. But I've seen people center mount them for park and like that too... it seems like a ski with a really big sweet spot. I'd be very surprised if, given you've been riding a center-mounted ski until now, you didn't like them just fine at -2.
animatorCould you measure these straight tape for me? Or if anyone has any intel, I’ve been looking at a pair of these in a 181 but I’m not sure if they measure true at 181 or more like 179. Thanks!
ethanshredzWe've got them at my shop, I'll measure and let you know tomorrow if you don't get an answer before then!
