I recently purchased some Kastle FX84s 176, and mounted them up with Marker Barons. There is no boot center mark across the top sheet; however, on the sidewall there is a mark that looks like this 4.1 |< I'm not sure what the 4.1 means?
I took this to be the boot center line, and comparing the placement of that mark with other 176 skis I have mounted with Baron's, it seemed to line up with the other skis boot center mark, so I mounted them there. I skied them once and although I like the ski, I could not help but think the bindings were mounted a little too far forward. There just doesn't seem to be a lot of shovel out front and a little too much tail. The other skis that I was comparing the center line to, are much wider and have a bigger shovel, so maybe it's an optical illusion. But, once I had the illusion in my head I couldn't help think there was a lot of tail back there when I was skiing them.
Can one of you Kastle shop pros confirm that that mark is the mount point? Does someone have a measurement from the tail of the FX84 of the mount point?
