09 Line Blend Mounting Point
I just picked up a pair of 2009 Line Blends in 178. I am 5' 11" and 180lbs. I ski mostly on the east coast in the trees. These are going to be my powder/soft snow skis. I do not ski park too often so I do not want to go center. The recommended mounting point is 78mm back from center. Does any one have any experience with mounting points on these skis? Any advice would be appreciated.

I have a well-used pair of these in 178 cm length that I am mounting with some Naxo NX21s. I'll maybe ski park 5-10% of the time tops and was just going to mount them on the recommended line. Thoughts?

Surely somebody around here skis these.

Was going to get these until I got the Candide Pows.... I also asked around, seems -4 from true center is a popular mounting spot.

mine work just fine at the recommended line, but I have the 18Xcm versions. decent cheap chinese skis.

^^^Thanks for the responses guys. EVC_CO, could you elaborate on what you mean by the "18xcm versions"?
Perhaps I misunderstood, but I'm not familiar with those.
Anybody else mount their Line Blends on the line with good results?

think he means he has the 183's, he just forgot the exact # but knew they were 180something....
You say you don't fuck around much in the park.... how much switch skiing do you do? Lots? Maybe go a little forward. Little? The recommended line will prolly suit you just fine.

Oh duh, they are 180-something. That makes sense. I'll be skiing switch quite a bit less than 5% of the time and going through the park less than 5% as well. I think I'm just going to mount them on the line.

I have had a few sets of those mounted at different points. Sounds like you should mount back slightly! The ski was designed as a go to everyday ski for freestyle minded shredders. Since that doesn't describe you mount .5cm back from the line. Trust me on this one. Half a cm doesn't seem like a huge deal but it will help you in the pow. On the line is fine as well if its too late.

Thanks Jetski. I'm putting them on the line since I'll rarely go into the park and I shall slay away! There were parkrats over on newschoolers talking about mounting them -2 from dead center (+6 from the line). I didn't think that was a great idea for me or really anyone for that matter.

I am pleased with my results after mounting them on the line.
