Rossignol Super 7 vs ON3P Pillowfight - mounting points
Anyone skied both and have some thoughts on their respective mounting points? I bought a pair of last years Pillowfights in a 196cm and am trying to figure out where to mount them. My gut says between -1 and -2cm. But I'm worried the funky design would work best at 0. My typical preferred mount is on the recommended or traditional line. I've never had a pair of skis like this though, with no camber and a funny sidecut.
I know they aren't all that similar, but my 195cm S7s are the closest ski I have to compare with. I have the S7s mounted at -1.5cm, and I like them well enough, except they feel too short and can occasionally be hooky. I'd describe the front of the ski as too short opposed to being mounted too far forward if that makes sense. I want more ski out front. With the ON3P's being longer, that may help regardless of the mounting.
I'd really prefer to drill them once. Be a bit of a bummer if the first day out I thought "Shit, I need to move the mount". It's happened to me before. I generally demo a pair to ride at 0 to determine if I like the mount point, but I don't think that is happening with Pillowfights.
-Good skier, prefer finesse to power but ski pretty aggressively.
-Prefer skiing way out in the front seat to the back. I rather dislike skiing in the backseat. I raced as a kid and some of the form apparently stuck.
-Landing switch isn't a big priority to me. Why the Pillowfights then? Because I think they look like a shitload of fun, and I love fun playful skis.

Mount them where Scott/Rowen say to. The mounting points are not chosen by accident.

I have mine (186) mounted @ bootcenter and wouldn't consider moving the mount point. To me the keyword is playful.

I'd go recommended, the 196 will still have a lot of tip out in front for you. The sidecut on that ski is fairly short in length, when I had them +2 forward, they felt sorta weird. I wouldn't go further than 1cm from the mount mark in either direction on that ski, but I'd like to hear from other owners, my skiing style just suits a near center mount.

My skiing style does not lend itself to a near center mount; I ski with my weight way too far forward. That said, it certainly sounds like I should try them on the recommended line. That's what I will do. Thanks guys.
