Nordica Patron mounting point?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

OK, i am now getting more proficient at doing things with one hand while my wrist mends and with all the new snow we have been getting in Tahoe (I must have cleared 3 feet form the deck and driveway on Saturday) I reckon it is time to get the 185 Patrons mounted up.  I have a set of Tyrolia 130 demos i was going to put on to give me soem flexibility to play with fore/aft positioning.  However after taking another look at them they seem to have a LOT of ramp angle so will maybe revert to the original plan and stick on a set of Tyrolia FF17s or Solly 916s I have.

 

I usually prefer a mount slightly forward of center but would welcome some thoughts from those who have experience with the Patrons.

 

Oh, me, 165#, 5'8", normally on a race ski, so default style is to drive from the tip of the ski.  The Patrons will be used for powder days, trees and Chutes.

Bump!

Bueller? Anyone?

I thought surely someone would chime in on this.

 

I'm curious where BOF CRS is in relation to the mark.

I didn't play around with different mounting points or try to figure out the BOF point so I can't really comment on the merits of different mounts.  I simply mounted some cheap Ross Axial 2 140s on my cosmetic blem Unleashed Hells--the Patron's slightly lighter twin (thank you Start Haus blem sale). 

 

I got them out on Saturday for the first time in about a foot to a foot and half of powder and thought they skied great (not sure what this means for my ON3P Billygoats).  I also tend to drive the tips (on the groomed going back to the lifts at least) and I had no trouble doing so from the back mount position.  However and FWIW, I don't think you would compromise the skis other virtues going a bit in front of the back mark.  I'll bet TGR has a thread on Patron/Unleashed Hell mounting points.

 

My stats--6'4" and 215 on 193 Unleashed Hells.
