Just picked up some lightly used 181cm Slicers (older black graphics) for my 16 y.o. son. These will be replacing his 168 CM Troublemakers which he has outgrown. He's currently about 6' and 165 lbs.
Looking for input on whether to mount his PX12's on the back line or +/- a bit. Skis have been drilled for the same bindings with a longer bsl, so I could use the existing toe holes which would put him about +1 cm. If I used the existing heel holes, it would put him about -1 cm. If necessary, I'll drill all new holes, but was hoping to be able to use one or the other existing set.
He skis all over the mountain (mostly Copper and WP/Mary Jane), usually seeking out softer snow if available, bumps, natural jumps, trees. Doesn't spend much time on groomers at all. Strong, athletic kid, but not a balls-to-the-wall type of skier - more of a play-around type. He'll go through the parks on occasion - perhaps toss a random 180 or 360, but that doesn't seem to interest him as much as free skiing off the beaten path.
