    People either go the line and keep it there, go -1 and keep it there, or go on the line, then move back to -1 and then keep it there (I'm in the 3rd group).
    With my Protests soon to be in the mail, I was wondering about where to mount them, -1 it will be. Thatís where I settled with the Super Freerides, but those are a franken mad scientist ski and the recommended mount was based on stock 194 Freerides.

    -1 it will be!

    Fuck juice, youíre outta your damn mind. Iíd ski those till they died and then use em for wall art. Gorgeous sticks! I get the wanting to do it cheaper but fuck theyíre already in hand. Just take the loss and embrace the awesomeness man...
    That said, I would totally buy these off you if I had any dough at all

    May not be a bad idea if you can find a four flex. I think the three flex will be a tad to soft for you.

    I bought them in #3 flex cuz I was going to use them for soft snow touring. I think they'd work great for that, but my Bibby Tours should be able to handle pretty much anything in the backcountry, and I need the money. I'm planning on moving to SoCal as soon as I get my degree.

    Dude, that money has already been spent. You have the reference ski. If you sell it, you're just gonna trick yourself into spending money on another pair of something because you "saved" some money. And in the end be no happier.

    I know....because I'm the same fucking way. The best way to save money is by not spending it.

    Drop them into GS then. They should go fairly quick.

    Cross-posting this.

    Managed to get a pair of Protests off a buddy of mine for my upcoming trip to Japan. It has inserts for Dynafit Speed Radicals which we were pretty sure would be money for me when we discussed it. Turns out my new boot has a smaller BSL and the mount is just barely too long

    The agreed upon sweet spot is pretty large for this ski right? I remember reading something like +2 to -2? Hoping I can reuse either the toe or heel holes. Skis also have one previous Dynafit mount that has been plugged, hence why I'm hoping to reuse some of the current inserts.

    Also, what's the easiest way to figure out what year they are. Weight and dimple potentially? Pictures available if that helps.

    Donít really need another thread about ramp Delta or praxis builds.

    But I didnít love my 183 mvp enduro/Carbon with vipecs. Marvelous for the ascent. Definitely a skittish build. I think the ramp angle of the vipecs is a thing I notice more than I realized. At -1, I still felt like I had to ski centered or backseat in variable or fresh snow. Once I hit the service road, they carve a trench on firm.

    Boots are maestrale rs 2.0, which has pretty aggressive fwd lean.

    Plan is to ski them again soon with my lupos (more upright boot) and see if I can discern a difference.

    Need more days on them of course. Only 2 so far.

    Felt a little more obligated to ski centered on my steeple/tecton combo as well. Wondering if the same explanation applies.

    Canít wait to get home to get them out.

    Trying to finalize a Japan trip, stupid ski bums canít commit to anything (imagine that), and these are definitely coming as half my quiver for the trip.

    Thanks for mentioning this. You may be on to something.

    I recently converted my GPOs from Wardens to Vipecs late last year. I skied them a bit (with the Vipec mount) and Lange XT 130s and liked them.

    This Friday, I took them out for a tour with my Orange Maestrales and felt the need to shift my weight back a bit. It was subtle, but noticeable. I'm going to watch this over the coming weeks.
