Rossi Sickle Mounting Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have two questions:

 

First, I picked up a pair of flat Sickles (S6) over the summer for a steal.  Also got some Rossignol Axial 2 bindings.  I'm 6'0", 190lbs 39yr old all mountain skier.  Ski West/Rockies pretty much exclusively.  Would like to hear some more opinions on mounting point.  I don't ski switch/park, but do the occasional backwards skiing with the kids...not a top priority. I would like to maintain as much mogul/tree maneuverability as possible, so that is a pretty big concern.

 

Based on my size, weight, skiing preference, let me have it....I'm leaning towards center at this point.  Would love to hear the logic behind other mount points.

 

Second, I'm in Austin...is there ANYONE here I can trust the mounting to or should I plan on doing it on mountain and using my old skis for a day?

 

Thanks!

There is another thread in the Gear Reviews section that covers mounting. Might want to check on TGR as there are some threads on there about the sickle (S6).

 

I have the 186 length and went with -2 for my mount. Love it there. Works good for me.

This location gives good soft snow performance but I can still carve pretty well on groomers for a wide ski. This is my favorite ski for steeps and tree skiing.

I've read all of the posts I can find on mounting the Sickles.  There doesn't really seem to be a consensus.  Forward, backwards, center....seems everyone has a different opinion.  

 

Tempted to consider a different binding with more options, but I hate plate bindings.

 

Also, does anyone know of an Austin shop capable of mounting bindings or should I attempt to do it myself?
