Like snow, there are skis that are good skis and skis that are good for you. That said, mounting point might be a factor in the lack of "WOW!". A cm or two up or back has more impact on shorter skis than it does on longer skis. Give them a couple of days to see how you adjust to them before moving bindings, especially if the toe pieces would need redrilling to move.
Just got a pair of Kastle MX70s at a great price. Anybody familiar with these? - Page 2

I vaguely remember that. If you find it, post the link.
I think the problem is a bunch of under-developed brain-muscle connections. I need to make 10,000 left turns correctly to fix it.
Since I now know what the movement thing is that I was under-doing, I may be able to devise something in the gym that might build some brain-memory (myelin sheaths or somesuch) over the summer.
What I was under-doing is a complex thing involving the right leg, hip/pelvis (movement in two planes), left shoulder and left arm. Now I have the whole thing bundled into one conceptual unit.
