    Praxxis BC 180cm mounting point advice

    This info is probably out there already somewhere, but thought Id try here.

    I have some praxxis BCs in a 180 with the white/tree/owl topsheet that I got on here. Any recommendations on where to mount them? On the dimple? I may have to go -1cm to avoid some holes on the toe. Going to be running them with plum guides and a 3.5mm toe shin. Apparently they are the enduro carbon core.
    Thanks! Click image for larger version.

    BC's were the only Praxis I liked on the line. Went 1-2 cm back on others.

    I like mine on the line, as with all my other Praxii.

    Praxxis BC 180cm mounting point advice

    On ze line if available.

    Have skied 180s and 190s there without issues.

    That being said skiing my current 190s plus 1cm (mount issue) and they ski great.

    So I think there is a large sweet spot.

    Thanks for the feedback! Im considering putting inserts inthis mount location, so I may have to move back a bit to avoid overlap and wanted to get a sense of how much that will effect ski feel

    I know that this may be of limited relevance today, but here's a little email exchange I had several years ago with Keith on the topic of a mount point for the 180 BC:
    (I ended up mounting my tele set up at 101cm from the tip, and it is perfect. (But mine was a for a tele setup, so ymmv.)

    Hope this helps!

    cheers,
    john

    John,
    Sounds like one of the first carbon pair that I sold mid summer on sale. They probably do not have a mark. Currently our mark is at 100.5 cm from the tip, but I feel thats a little to far back so I would go 99 cm from the tip. Hooking the tip and pulling the measuring tape tight to boot center line.
    Hope you enjoy the skis, I think its probably the best model we have made yet.

    Thanks
    Keith

    Message Body:
    Hey Guys,

    I've had a pair of the Backcountry's laying around the house for at least two years that (I confess) I bought used on TGR. Here's the problem: I don't know where to mount them.

    Some relevant info:
    (1) I don't know the year they were made. I *think* it was the first; the graphic is yellow/orange sunrise with trees on a hillside.

    (2) They are 180cm.

    (3) I'm going to mount them for tele.

    Thanks for any advice you might be willing to give me on them!

    cheers,
    john
