I love my P40 too but as I posted in another thread, I think my binding is mounted a little too far(7mm) back, resulting in me needing to stay aggressive all the time. I will probably try a remount. I heard that Volkl's already have their center mark fairly far back to start with.
I'm torn between getting a 65-70mm or 70-75mm width ski. I ski out west once a year and would love the extra floatation of a wider waist. Also, it would help my off-piste skiing her in the east. I wonder how much I would have to give up in edge hold and quickness, however.
I am 1 cm forward with tecnica tnt explosion 8's 304mm.....they absolutely rock....remount for sure
re mid fat, search for another recent thread re query on ss 4 star....I discussed that my tech is insistent that my next ski should be a volkl 7 24 exp in a 177....he is firm on it -enuff so to be offering em to me at his cost(I refer him a lot of biz)....and knows my skiing first hand/ he further says edge hold is race ski like, which I insist on (we east coast guys know why, right?
).....don't want to repeat here but I made comments about it in the other thread...this tech has been spot on before...I might try a pair without a demo....or wait for the allstar(or ski the plats till they fall apart!)
If you remount your plats, you might end your search right there.....I haven't found anything better enuff yet to spend the money....make sure you got lift on em...the MRR's have a lot of lift, gets em on edge real quick....if you got flat bindings on em grab some Marker MRR's or Salomon Propulse or the like/gotta have lift(watch the din number tho, some of em start pretty high for 140lbs)...have a tech do the remount so it is done right, I go 1cm forward cause I like a lotta grip and I don't fear the "frozen granular" the ski is so smooth and stable I found the 1cm forward to not impact the skis crazy high speed stability, even if you mount em dead center you'll see a huge improvement, remember tho get some racing/ plate style bindings as I describe if you don't have em already....lemme know how you make out....ttyl
