I finally got my Marker Griffons installed on my 2010 Gotama 186's. After reading everyone's opinions on mounting positions, I decided to go ahead and get them mounted +2 cm forward of boot center, because I've found myself skiing switch more and more. It's too late now, but now I'm starting to have a bit of "mounting remorse" as I'm not totally sure if that was a good spot for them, or if I should have gone a bit more toward the center. Stinks that I won't be able to test it for another 3 weeks.
From what I understand, I gave up some float, but should gain some maneuverability. What I'm curious about is HOW MUCH of a difference a centimeter fore or aft the boot position makes. Did I screw up big time, or will I not be able to tell THAT much of a difference? I'm starting to think I made a bad decision, since I bought the Gotama to be my powder ski in the first place.
Hopefully you guys can put this poor gaper's mind at ease a bit. Haha.
