sorry to not reply, been out of the country for a couple weeks
I mounted the skis at the traditional line. with the adjustment i can get with the NTN plates that gives me (from traditional) 0, +1, and +2.
i only have one day on them and so far they seem great. there is A LOT of tail on this ski. not sure how thats going to work out in the woods.
I'm hoping to get out tonight in about a foot of fresh, if my opinion changes i'll let you know.
