    Fuck yeah the 5.75 year bump. Lusted after these for years, finally snagged a pair of leftovers in 190. Anyone own them now? Owned them recently-ish? Thoughts on mount point- just go recommended? try as a might still a bit of an old school driver of skis.
    Do I detect a lot of anger flowing around this place? Kind of like a pubescent volatility, some angst, a lot of I'm-sixteen-and-angry-at-my-father syndrome?

    fuck that noise.

    gmen.

    Tof Henry says -3 from recommended is the best spot.
    Lots of euro guys like it there too.

    I also think Vitamin I thinks that -3 from rec is the best spot.

    Apparently you should go atleast -2 if youíre not newschool

    Iíve always wanted to ski a pair too

    On my pair of 190cm Magic J, the manufacturer line is at -4.3cm from measured TrueCenter. But my favorite position is -3.1cm from measured TrueCenter, which is +1.2cm from the manufacturer line.

    But it's all personal tastes. If you know your fave position on one or more of the ski models below, then maybe you can map your mount position tastes to my tastes, and then maybe you can forecast your fave position for the ski models you've never tried.

    My fave positions on some exaggerated-rocker-tail ski models (in cm's from measured TrueCenter):

    -1.5 Volkl Chopstick 185cm
    -1.9 Surface New Life 194cm
    -2.0 OG Hellbent 179cm
    -2.0 OG Hellbent 189cm
    -2.3 Salomon Rocker2 122 192cm
    -2.5 Mr. Pollard's Opus 192cm
    -2.7 OG Bent Chetler 192cm
    -2.7 Shreditor 120 (Pettitor) 189cm
    -3.1 Magic J 190cm
    -3.7 Volkl Two 196cm
    -3.7 Radict 185cm
    -4.0 Helldorado 193cm
    -4.9 Gunsmoke 193cm
    -5.3 Jeffrey 122 191cm
    -5.3 Spatula 186cm
    -5.5 OG Bibby 190cm
    -6.4 OG 4FRNT Renegade 196cm
    -7.2 ObSETHed 117 189cm
    -7.4 OG Squad7 190cm
    -8.8 Elan Boomerang 190cm
    -9.1 Billy Goat 2014 191cm

    If I can sell my Protests Iíll probably replace them with a pair of Magic Js, curious time see what everyone thinks of them. I donít really need another pair of >120mm wise skis since I have Pon2oons and Spatulas (new to me in May), but then again those are both >130 so something between 120 and 130 would be rad.
