I've got some 04-05 P60 Race Stock GS skis (marked with Race Dept, also marked GC Racing, but in 180cm, so they're not the consumer GC Racing model), these are the >=21m.
One of my regular Atomic GS12 186cm sticks just decided to delaminate about 8" of edge behind the heel, so I'm digging the P60's out of the closet. I don't see anything new that I like other than Atomic 24m 183cm D2's, and boy are they hard to get. I'd rather wait until summer to replace my GS boards, many more deals then than now. I'm doing USSA Masters and NASTAR, and I can ski a 27m ski, but they sure don't feel right for what I'm skiing.
Anyway the P60's have NO centermark. No "I", no nothing, not on the topsheets, not on the sidewalls.
If someone has a Volkl reference manual, it may be in there. I've seen some links out there for the 05-06 manual, but none work, nor should they, as some idiot like myself might actually be able to mount his bindings properly if he finds one. Like I would ask my local ski shop to deal with this.....
I've made my best guess at a mount point, looking at some other skis in that length and the chord center and BOF method, and I was also somewhat limited by holes already in the ski. I have a newer model Marker piston plate on there now, and I can move about 1" up if I need to. I may be as far as 1" back from where I should eventually be, and I can always do it by feel if I have to. Still, it would be so great to know where the mark should have been.
It would be really cool if anyone had the resources to look this one up, though - just to see where I stand with my current mount. I don't have the measurement on me, will update this when I do. 78.5cm from tail currently using the rearmost of the 3 toe positions on the marker plate comes to mind, but I'm not 100% on that.
Racetiger 05-06 or 06-07 and 07--08 may be the same. I know that factory marks often aren't what we end up using, but it's nice to know where it was supposed to be....
If you have ANY GS ski in a 180cm, I'd be interested in how far your center mark is from the tail. Rockered skis need not apply.
Thanks in advance
