    I've got eagles and the blue/white gen. Eagles are fukt and blues are still running cleanAttachment 397977
    Delams were common in the orange models too (not sure about maroons)... Same issue? Regardless, GS cores being stapled always stood out to me

    I was not aware of that ski and I like it. Will be looking to see a pair in person.

    Monster 103 recommended line

    Recently, I got 2003/2004 Head Monster 103 skis in 193cm length. They have never had bindings mounted on them. I haven't been able to find any markings indicating the recommended mounting line on these skis. Does anyone happen to know the position of the recommended mounting point (e.g., how many centimeters from the tail)?

    Don’t know the recommended mount point but I’d certainly recommend mounting ahead of that. Makes that ski much easier to turn

    Wow, that’s quite the find! I cannot remember the exact mount location, haven’t owned a pair in a long time. Maybe PM Marshal. I think it’s-12 but I liked mine +1.5 of it.

    I have a later model 183, so I don't think that will help, but someone here has got to have a 193 pair to measure!

    I have that model yr and a few yrs later model(both 193), but not quite sure when I'd even be able to check as the skis are located about 10 miles from where I am right now. That model yr 03/04 had the infamous brittle sidewalls, so keep an eye out for delamming
    The ski has a very traditional tail. I'd bet reco is close to -14 front tc

    Thanks for the info, everyone. Managed to snag the skis for about $80 in Japan . The condition is pretty good, with some rust on the edges.

    Regarding the rec line, is it around -12 to -14 centimeters from true center? I'd like to PM Marshall to ask, but since I'm still a newbie on this board, it seems I don't have the privilege to PM yet. I'll wait a bit longer for more info.

    Measured both my pair. 1 from 03/04 1 from 07/08
    I took pics but can't upload.
    The line is @ 80 cm's from the tail. The skis measure out @ 192, so recommended is -16 from tc, which, to me, seems a touch extreme

    So, there's this small mark at about 80 cm from the tail that includes the recommended drill diameter. I kinda noticed it before, but I thought it was way back from the recommended line, so I figured it was just showing the drill diameter. Turns out, it's like -16cm from the ski center (my skis are a bit over 192 cm long). I won't be hitting the slopes with my Monster 103s until next season, but I'm thinking of mounting the bindings at either -2cm or -1.5cm. Thanks for the valuable info!

    Wow, I didn’t remember how far back these were. So you’re going back of -16? That seems crazy to me. I really liked mine at +1.5.

    Oops, my bad. Yeah, I'm thinking of mounting them at around +2.0cm to +1.5cm too.
