Is this binding mounted in correct position for my boot size / center line on these Bonafides

Follow up question, now that I know I cannot adjust the toe of Marker Griffon forward.  

 

Looking at the attached picture, is this boot/binding lined up approx correctly with the corresponding ski center line?

 

Im not sure if the line on the side of the ski is the point where the center of the boot should be for a typical or all mountain mount?

 

These being my ski for powder days, being a bit behind the center line should be fine.

good enough for Government work...:)   Looks like it liens up pretty well...

 

In reality, if the boot is one size different (0.5 sizes don't count since the shell doesn't change) the MAX difference in shell length is ~20mm IF it went from a 25.5 say to a 27 or 10mm if it was from a 25 to a 26.5. (and from the BSL it looks like a 26/26.5 shell) So max you would be  back in worst case is 10mm.  Or more likely 5mm in better case.  However it looks even closer than that.  Set the forward pressure and go ski.  You will not notice any difference..

For powder day's, you'll be fine. For most other day's, you'll be fine. That's so small...

The arrow is fine, now go shoot it.  If it don't fly well, it's not the mounting!

In my opinion it looks a little forward. Not much but not enough for ya to notice. Bonafides powder skis? Sounds like an everyday ski for the western states. Most local guys rip that midsole dimsion for years, 98mm . I have done it for 12 yrs. it's a heavier ski n this dimension, like the old dynastar pro and manta. True ripping skis in crud and off piste. A powder ski is much wider. How much do ya weigh and how tall? If you are a smaller guy it may be a good fluffy day ski for ya. Just remember most of us here have skied skinny skis in the pow in the past. Dont worry and have fun!

Im about 160, 5' 10''.  Im used to race skis but had the chance to rent a pair of K2 102 Shreditors last year in April when mammoth got dumped on.  I felt like width of the skis performed well enough in the power off the top, so I picked up these Bonafides on CL.  Most of the snow up top gets chewed up within a few hours, so I wanted a ski that would perform well all mountain.  From what I read, the Mantra and Bonafides vie for the top spot in all mountain/big mountain.  

 

Thanks again for the verification.
