    And FWIW, even at +1.5 i never had issues with tip dive even being on the taller side.
    Congrats on the knock up

    Same spot, I have Praxis/PM Gear Lhasa Fat's with like 3 days on them and I keep thinking how Powder Boards were the best powder ski I ever had until I tried to get back to a lift. What to do?

    That is why I like dogs, more than most people.

    Borrowing this thread (sorry) given the mount point discussion... quick question, do any of you protest gurus know if the rec line on the OG protests was also -8? On say the 188s. Trying to work out if I can salvage an old pair, working around a lotta holes

    Try to get them as close to 102.5 from the tip.

    IIRC, Keith suggested 101.5 straight pull from the tip for my old 188s. Can you mount around 102-103?

    Thx, and yes I think I can get in that range. Would be putting inserts in. Question is whether to fill a hole and then use part of it (risky) - or just totally work around the existing holes. Thx again

    True but the consensus here and by mine mounted there is that 102.5 is the G spot. Ymmv and all that jazz.

    Yep, im excited for the kid. I dont NEED to sell these, but im frugal by nature and it makes me anxious having superfluous luxuries like 3 different pow skis when i just bought a house and have a kid on the way (even though $450 is absolute peanuts comparatively).

    I feel like im fishing barbless here- have had a few hard bites, and even hooked one that got away just as i was landing him. fuckit, i might bring them out for the first time all season later this week as the pow cycle continues here in the PNW.
