Clever idea pushing your mount point forward for Stowe's tight tree lines, probably work well down at the 'Bush as well, my old stomping grounds.
Just had my 193s out for the first time in CO this past week and skied everything from the morning freeze, to afternoon corn and slush, as well as fresh POW at Vail of 4-6" on Sunday to the overnight totals of 10-16" on Monday. All I can say is WOW!!!
Replaced my Totem Pole obSETHed 189s with these Patron 193s, and kept my Jester Schizos, mounted at '0'.
The only negative, and it is not an issue, is these will wander at speed if you don't keep them tipped or on a slight edge. Also the long shallow rocker allows the tips to flutter unlike the burlier obSETHeds, which also had a sheet of metal.
Edge hold is unreal for a mid fatty, but a ski so easy to ski that my buddy demoed a pair of 185s on Monday and was right there. Even more interesting is that he skis a Mojo 94 as a daily driver and didn't miss a beat on these. In fact, we did 20K vertical by lunch and managed another 11K afterwards, and we are in our late fifties. Sorry no pics of that action just this selfie.
