    Don't wanna go too off topic, but are you liking the Raptors so far? I've drank the "I want all my inbounds gear to be as heavy as possible" kool-aid and want to give them a try

    Two days on them and I’m in love. The dampening and power transmission is very noticeable over my Hawx Ultra 130. But the biggest thing for me has been the much tighter heel and ankle pocket. Somehow my freeride zips fit perfect.

    last time I was at the factory I asked if they had any hidden somewhere by chance. Sure enough there were a couple left surprisingly. Was beyond stoked to have the actual Meridian top sheet.

    130’s or did you stretched 115’s onto the gt too? Would be shocked if they worked on the 196 too.

    DWs arrived yesterday and call me delusional, but even unmounted they just feel like they're going to be 'the ones' for how I ski....waist, flex, shape....and that extra camber nom nom.

    Got my Spring ‘23 orders mounted up. Solved the ‘which binding for the Countach’s?’ question. Really excited for my 14 yo daughter to get on her Sierra’s.

    No delusion detected. I felt the same way when I first got my DWT, took all of 5 turns to realize my suspicions were 1000% correct

    Just got some dw104s last week and in a world of early taper, I’m always surprised by how little taper the dw series has

    Only planned on getting one new pair this year but when they dropped the meridians with (at least in my opinion) an all time sick topsheet, I knew what had to be done.

    Ready to get my DW mounted w Strives, checked in with Moment on fore/aft movement and as I've seen mentioned round here too the good word was 'don't go much more than +/- 1cm or things'll get hooky because of the triple camber.' Makes sense. I'm not much of a spinner and sometimes feel too much tail if things are too forward...was also looking at the Countach for ref. - has anyone tried/noticed much meaningful difference at say -1 from the line? I'm fine to go with on the line but just wondering in case there's an extra gram of joy to be squeezed out.

    I never spin and I loved the DW on the line. My CT is also on the line and has taken the award for my favorite moment ski. Lots of RD goes into the mount points so that’s where I put it.

    Have my DW mounted at the rear most triangle (-2) per Moment's rec for a directional tele skier. Never had any issues with hookyness. I think anywhere within the triangles is a safe bet.

    I would agree with you on going back to make the skin more directional but in my experience forward can get a lil funky.

    Coming from a park background and the Deathwish being my first adult ski purchase i decided I need to mount as far forward as they recommend. So I went +2 and boy did those skis rip you into a turn when I engaged the side cut. Felt like the ski had a mind of its own.

    Remounted at rec and fell in love. These are all for alpine bindings.

    I have a dedicated DW/outlaw setup and it’s at rec and has taken my tele quiver to a skin of one.

    **tldr**
    Can strongly recommend not going forward of the rec line, maybe back if you’re a very directional skier. If you want to move the mount around outside of what is tried and true then you’re probably looking at the wrong ski.
