2010 (non-rockered) Sixth Sense Huge 175cm -- where to mount?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I know the general consensus on mounting the flat-camber Huge in the 185cm length was at 2.5cm-3cm behind the "standard" mount line. Would this be the same for the 175cm length? A buddy of mine recently got the 175cm version and I want to give him good advice on where to mount them. Thanks.

I ride that ski. mounted it on the standard line and like it a lot, so that spot is not awful. but I could see it 1 - 1.5cm back, no further. note that the tail is not that powerful already with the twin tip, it washes out rarely, so if you go too far back, you have no tail. on standard bc line, the tip is a little shorter than my Legend Pro Riders and the tail, minus the twin tip is the same as the LP's. If that helps.

 

hopefully you'll find someone who mounted it back and has personal experience.

My 185 Huge's are mounted -2cm from the rear std line. I'm happy with them there.

A lot of it depends on how and what you want to do with them.

I had mine -2.5 and it was sweet.

Thanks Davluri -- I read some of your posts about being on the 175cm Huge when I was doing a search to find mount positions for this shorter length, but I never found anyone specifically state where they had mounted the 175. Also appreciate your comments about the comparison with mount position on your LPRs -- that helps a lot.

 

I believe Scott and, as stated, Rossi Smash were on the 185, along with my brother who also skis the 185 mounted at 2.5cm back. I just wasn't sure if this mount position translated to the shorter 175 length.

the 175cm, the way Dynastar measures, is roughly a 165 plus twin tail. the 10cm is lost in the front of the ski if you use the bc mark provided for your mount. another way to say it.
