    Plenty playful in the line. Mounted mine at zero and they feel plenty playful. This is a playful ski after all. If anything I'd go back 1.

    If you are going to be skiing 10 inches of pow with these I double for sure wouldn't mount ahead of the line if it was me.

    Ymmv.

    You are going to get lots of different answers. My advice is that if you are a bigger guy, stay on the line and ski the longest length you are comfortable with. If you are lighter weight, you can go forward and gain some playfulness. It’s a very versatile ski with a big sweet spot. It’s hard to go wrong.

    Also, it’s a so-so floater. I don’t think the mount point hurts or improves that much.

    I should have added that I'm 6'1", 175 lbs. I opted for the 186 length. Sounds like on the line would be a safe option.

    Appreciate the input!

    Yeah…you want to stay on the line, IMO. I own the 186 and 191…both mounted on the line. 5’ 8” and 200-lbs.

    Nordica Enforcers - TGR-Enough for Their Own Thread

    Frickin love my E104s! So good on piste and also off piste in steep, tight spots. Solid and stable. Yet easy and predictable. You can carve or slide turns. Great mix of strong/damp enough with huge skiability. Made an M102 and QST106 redundant for me. I also grab my E104s out more than my R11s now. Could easily be a quiver of one.

    I’m mounted with STH16’s, at +2.5cm (-6.3cm from center). I have a short bsl (289mm) so factor that in. And I'm a dedicated forward mounter.....all my skis are mounted between -6.00cm to -7.25cm. I’m 5’7”, 165lbs on the 179cm. The 179cm floats me just fine mounted +2.5cm. I do think my next pair will be at +2cm.

    Edit - I’m interested in A/B’ing these against some 179cm Mindbender 108Ti's that I just picked up.

    Here’s the E104s in Blackcomb’s Sapphire Bowl in March....they just look easy to ski?

    I have the 186 mounted on the line. I would not go forward of the recommend line. I find the recommend line plenty playful. my only regret about the enforcer 104s is that I did not get the 191. Im 5' 10" 200

    I ordered up some 115s last night for a pretty-much-everyday ski in western canada. Stoked. Good deals from Gearhub in Fernie right now on other Enforcers too.

    Seems like most people are on the E104s, which makes sense for this crowd.

    Anyone have experience with the more frontside E100? I know the ski will excel on groomers and hard pack. What I’m really interested in is how well it crosses over to soft snow and bumps?

    Dimensionally speaking I can tell how the two skis will vary in the handling department, with the only discernible difference that I can see being the tail profile and obviously shaving off a few mm on the E100. What I really want to know is if the layup changes between the two?

    I own the 2018 Enforcer 100 in the 185 and 2020 Enforcer 104 Free in the 186 and 191.

    I bought the Enforcer 100 to ski with my blue run/intermediate level kids. It is very good natured and easy to ski but can also be pushed pretty hard. It is just damp enough and just stable enough for most resort skiing. It handles bumps well and provides a respectable level of float in up to 6” or so of soft snow. It does have a speed limit and a hard charger will find it quite easily. It is a really great ski for most skiers, though. As my kids got stronger, I have skied it less. I think I skied it one day last year.

    When Nordica released the 104, they updated the construction from previous Enforcers by going from a poplar/ash titanal layup to a poplar/beech/balsa/titanal + carbon layup. The 104 is a ostensibly a slightly wider Enforcer 100 with more tail rocker. It performs better a bit better in deep snow. It seems to float better and is looser. The construction feels more playful and a bit less damp to me. I actually prefer the “feel” of the pre-2021 Enforcer 100.

    Last year, the Enforcer 100 was updated to the same construction as the Enforcer 104. I have yet to ski it, but it seems that many believe that the 100 is a little “more” ski than it used to be, a bit more “business” and less forgiving. Not sure how that exactly translates to bumps or off piste skiing. It still wins the magazine awards and sells like crazy though, so maybe the construction change wasn’t that big of a deal.

    Hey Bandit Man, if you decide at some point in time that you only need one set of those 104's I'm watching for some 191's and I'm just down in Ballard.
