Mounting point - 184 Icelantic Shaman

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Canvassing potential wisdom on this.

 

Rossi Axial going on for a 317 BSL. Heavy guy used to skiing longer skis of similar widths. No park nonsense.

 

On the line? If elsewhere why?

 

 

Thanks

I bought some Icelantic Keepers this year and mounted them on the line for my 336 BSL boots, and they work great.  I did some research, and unless you are using them to ski backwards too, on the line seems to be the preferred location for all the Icelantic skis.  They have a boot center and cord center line, the later of which is for mounting tele bindings. The Shamans are short, and because of their big tips have a rather sever sidecut.  If you move your boot you get a more drastic performance change than on most other skis.

Mudfoot - thanks For further clarity these are not my main pow ski but will likely see service as an "other day" ski out west and possible deployment as a Euro weekender one ski quiver.

I have some 184 Shamans mounted with Rossi turntables on the boot center line. Fantastic fun ski that was my daily driver. Snow had to be really hard before I got out my skinny skis(Mantras). Spent most of my time at Mammoth and Alpine Meadows
