I like the fact that I have found this forum and TGR, however too much info and theory is dangerous. I picked up a pair of 184 Mantra's from PTEX here for a price that I couldn't pass up, now I need to get my bindings settled. I have read all the mounting ideas about 1, 1.5, 2 cm back, and all about binding failures. I never considered any of this before, I just bought skis and bindings, had them mounted and skied them. I do NOT do park, trick stuff or fakie. I do ski fast and hard in off piste stuff at Squaw and elsewhere, small cliff jumps (less than 20'). I like to rail fast on the groom to get back to the chair, but don't ski groomers per se. Obviously powder is king, but I ski all conditions. I'm 6-0 200lbs. I'm thinking of just finding an older salomon 912 or 914 and mounting on the line, but I keep hearing mount it back 1-2 cm. HELP! I looked at the Jester, nice design, probably bulletproof, but I don't see me needing it. THanks.
