Any thoughts on the mounting point? Just bought a pair of 192s and wondering if I can go forward of recommended at all. Seems like it gives you a ton of tip on that line.

I wouldn't stray from the the recommended line. You'll need that extra tip length if you plan to ski groomers and hardpack because of the 30+ cm that's lost with the tip rocker.

I actually talked with the Armada rep on this one. He strongly recommended staying at or near the factory recommended line. He told me it was a bad plan to move the mount point forward, as you will be too far ahead of the ski's sidecut causing a horrible twitchy feeling.

I actually tried this on my TSTw and he was 100% correct. This ski does not do well when mounted 2cm forward of that factory line. They were difficult to control and terribly unpredictable. Armada skis can be really tricky to mount, so if in doubt, I suggest hitting up their customer service.
