I bought the volkl one in 186cm for jibbing and freestyle in the powder but the recommended mounting point is quite far back. I am thinking to mount maybe +4 or +5 but i don't know if it will ski that well in powder. These are my only powder skis. I am 160 lbs and 6 feet tall. Where would be the best place to mount?

I wouldn't go that far forward without demoing. In the Blister Gear review they used +1 (http://blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/2013-2014-volkl-one), and I run mine at -0.3 (was able to dial mine in b/c I have the Marker Griffon demo binding). My recommendation would be to mount them with the Marker Griffon demo or the Tyrolia AAAttack demo (placed so they cover your desired range as well as possible), which are the two demo bindings that are supposed to have performance comparable to that of their retail counterparts. My Griffon demo has less lateral slop than any of my other bindings (possibly except my Head FF16, which I've not tested), all of which are retail models.
