Mounting adjustment Questions on a True Twin for All Mountain Skiing?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm new to this issue, so apologies for another mounting position question; I've read around a bit, but am still unclear bout my particular situation because my ski is a true twin and I'd like to know if it's possible to tweak it so that it performs more like an all-mountain ski.   Hoping for some help.

 

I have a pair of 2015 Icelantic Da'Nollies that I bought at a deep discount kind of on a whim, because I'd demoed them and had a lot of fun.   The pair I bought came with demo bindings (Marker Griffons) but had never been used. I like to ski switch and do small 180s, so I like having twin tips, and the 95mm waist is fun and stable for me.  I don't do rails.  I'm old.  

 

Only thing is, they are center mounted and they *suck* at exiting turns, which takes some of the fun out of using them around the mountain.

 

Here's my question:  would it make sense to move the mounting position back a bit?  It would be easy to do with the demo bindings, right?  Or would that compromise the performance overall?  If moving back is do-able,  how many cm would you move them?  

 

Also, if it's really not desirable to move the bindings, I might sell the Da'Nollies and look for a directional twin.  Any recommendations?  (East Coast groomer skier mostly, advanced, 5'8" 170 lbs.  I like mid-width skis, though: 88-100 or so).)

 

Thanks so much: I really appreciate any feedback!

Most true twin tips have two lines marked on them.  There may be more but one line will be for all mountain skiing and another for park.  Since the ski has demo bindings you should be able to move the location of the boot either forward or backward.  It's worth a try.  If you can't move it far enough, remounting is not that big a deal.

This. You could adjust them (since they are demo bindings) and see what you like better. It sounds like you're looking for something a little set back from true center. Most true twins are set at true center so that they behave the same way switch as the do normally.
