    I sure will! I also read the BC length recommendations... It seems they recommend rather short sizes. Based only on the shape of the ski in question (and because this is TGR) I'd probably would've gone for the 189 over the 183. But in reality the 177 might be the better choise for many. Anyways, time will tell. In due time I'll let y'all know my findings.

    I was on Animas as a pow ski for a season a couple years ago (probably 2018/2019 vintage). I liked them when it wasnít too deep, but anything deeper than shin and I had huge tip dive. Lots of brutal double ejections.

    Swapped to the Noctas and love them for deep days. Fun the pivot and slash but they can also hold a more aggressive line. No tip dive problems.

    Was the 189 Anima and 190 Nocta. All mounted on the line.

    That was my exact experience with the old Animas. I had demo binders on so I had to move them -2cm, even then in deep stuff they wanted to throw me OTB.

    Be interesting to see if the wider tip on the new Anima would help.

    I don't think 4mm is the issue

    the anima would benefit from a H-plate. It needs more rigidity but retain the same weights.



    and hell ya Irip! Thats going to be a blast! Canít wait to get some laps in with you. 100 or so daysÖ

    What is the farthest back you are mounting bindings on the Atris?

    i went back 1cm and didnít like them. Some guys do. Some guys like them back 2cm. If you are looking to go farther then that, there are other skis that work better.

    Thanks. I got hooked up on a great deal with a new pair of last seasons Atris in 178. Im 5' 6" 180# soi I think the ski will work out just fine although I always wish I went bigger but this is what my buddy had so I went with it. I have a friend that skis his Atris -4 from the line and that seems a little far back but I have no experience with them only the Corvus which I ski -1.

    I have been skiing the Corvus 2017 cambered in 175 and I love it right on the line. This year Im going up to a 183 in last years model most likely mounted right on the line.

    178 is probably perfect. Iím 5í11 185 and ski ok, my 184 is great 98% of the time. Sometimes I wish I had a 189 just for more top end, but the Corvus does that a lot better. I have a 188 Corvus on the line. I like it. The 183 was more accessible and playful, the 188 is more of a demanding necessary tool.

    For sure the Corvus is a demanding ski. I kind of like having that in my quiver as this season will be my 50th year on skis and to have something that allows me to push myself a little harder and feel comfortable doing so is a blessing. I never had the feeling that I could drive the Corvus too hard and still not have complete control is refreshing. I cant wait to try the newer version in a bigger size.

    Late to the thread but itís summer and Iím not on TGR as much. Atris is -8. Iíve gone back as much as -1.5. Did not like the ski mounted that far back. Lost its playfulness but didnít gain much stability. Just felt like the tips were a big lever that got caught up in shit. I think if you are thinking you want to mount the Atris behind the line, either size up, or youíre really just looking for a more directional ski. I remounted a set of Atrisí at +1 and was surprised I liked them at least as much as on the line. Overall theyíre my favorite ski of all time and Iíd always mount them as close to recommended as possible.

    I mounted -1.5 from the line. If I don't like it Ill either move up to the line or just go bigger. Im a short heavy guy and every time I buy skis I always wish I had gone a little bigger. Hence the 183 Corvus for this year mounted on the line.

    You've probably all seen this, but here's NS's take on the new Anima:

    Does anybody happen to have the Navis Freebird and Plum ski crampons? The actual width of the 100mm crampon is anywhere from 101-103 depending on who is measuring. Iím curious if anybody has gotten away the 100mm instead of the 110mm.

    Letís liven this up a little bit. Iím dying for snow and getting really sick of laying stone and moving dirt. Iíve been working hard on not only moving shit at work, but moving my quiver around. Iím not done yet so it canít go into quiver pics yet. But getting closer by the day. The ferox is being replaced by a new one, so I can quiver kill it to share plums with the solis. The Corvus freebird is the only one not quiver killed. Notca is killed for a duke pt. Corvus is killed for jesters. Atris shares the duke pt and jesters. I have flights booked for tahoe in jan, steamboat slope side for ten days in March, plus all my east coast travel and home mtn ripping at the ole strap-on.

    I've got some Corvus Freebirds showing up tomorrow. I need to mount my pivots on the Captis I got but I'm waiting for new boots to come in before I do that.
