Do you center mount?

    If you've mounted your bindings center how do you skis feel all mountain?

    I've been moving my bindings more forward every new pair I get. Now my boot mark is now just 2.5 cm behind the Center of Running Surface. I love how my skis handle this way, although I've heard warnings that it'll feel like you have too much tail for carving. I haven't found that to be true. What's your experience?

    @athe0007 I center mount my park skis because they ride way better switch that way. They still shred the rest of the mountain, it just takes some getting used to and a little stance adjustment. As long as you are able to adapt your skiing style you should be fine, and you can definitely carve a center mount. Center mounts really suck in the bumps, but that's about it

    They suck in the bumps? I'd think they'd pivot better. I guess you don't know what your tails are doing?

    @athe0007 It's a lot of tail to have behind you when you're making quick turns, and you can't drive your tips as well from a center mount.
