I am curious to know if anyone can tell me if my theory is sound.
So I got a new pair of 188 super S7 skis and based upon a lot of feedback mounted them at 0. For most 0 and -2 was the recommended with a lot of people leaning toward the -2.
I understand that further mounting back typically equates to better powder skiing, but poorer turn initiation. On the flip side more forward equals not as good in powder, but better turn initiation.
What I was curious of is how a skiers height and weight affect the mounting decision. My theory was I am not a very big person at 5'8" 165 pounds. So I would be less likely say than a 200 IB skier to make the tips dive and go over the handle bars. On the flip side I would not have as much mass to drive the tips and therefore mounting slightly forward would make the ski a little more manageable.
Is this theory seem plausible? I guess I will know more this weekend and if I am going to be redrilling.
