Mounting up 07 Seth's?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I just got my 07 Seths 179, I am unsure where to mount them (I know shiney side up) but there are multible midsole markings. I will NOT be using these in a park but basicly as my deep snow ski. How are people mounting these? 0? 1? 2? more? In laying these next to a Snoop Daddy, running surface to running surface, the Snoop's center is about 2 on the Seth.

Not sure if you are Flexon and have seen this...

That mounting scale on the sidewall you are talking about is to help techs set the bindings up for everyones needs easily. The end of the scale toward the tail is the midsole center mark, everything in front of that is a forward mount going all the way to core center. If you won't be riding switch go with midsole mark.

You might find this thread useful for deciding: http://www.k2skis.com/idealbb/view.a...74C0EBEE6BBB22

The new SV's apparently are the same as the older SV's as far as the mounting graph on the sidewall. The boot mid sole mark is actually at +2 and not 0.

Since you mentioned you want for pow tree skiing, I'd recommend +3 to +5. If you were to use for pow only then 0 to +2. Mine are +3.5

I think I am going to go +1 or 2, not sure yet.

I'd say +2.

fwiw - I have played with the demo bindings on my 8800's. Changing 1cm does not make much of a difference - 2 clicks is very noticable - .5, .2 of an inch, would not be noticeable in soft snow... Maybe split the diff like Wizard's 3.5 or 1.5 for you... I wish I had this problem...

Phil what bindings did you go with?

btw, after a TON of research I decided to mount the naxo's. I think I'm going with +3.

Salomon S912's. If I went with the 189, I would have gone +3, but I wanted a little more in front of me.

Seems like two good choices since you are going to use it as a pow ski. I'm looking to use it in the trees as well as pow and big mountain. You think +3 is good?

Depending how much snow we get, I might ski it east too. MRG/Bush ect. I have my 82 wasted Titan's for most of my tree skiing east.

I plan on using it in the pow and trees. Possibly filling my all mountain ski position also. I'm going a little forward because I want it to respond in the trees, and am concerned that it may be a little too soft for my taste in the tip if I mount it way back.

btw, let me know when you're up at the bush. I'm there all the time.
