I'd like to hear more about mounting points if anyone can provide some beta. I found the Obsetheds were best at least +2 forward of traditional and understand that those looking for more of a jib ski love it around true center. I easily sank my tips at +5 (still -2.5cm back from true) on the Seths, and hear that Pep Fujas has been riding the Petts at +2. Appreciate any feedback. Thank you.

J Berg - If you're referring to the 2010/2011 ski (i.e. last year's model) which the same chassis as the current 2011/2012, then this will be applicable... After demoing these skis on a few occasions (knee deep to groomers) I found the cherry mounting spot to be +3 to +5.5, which is consistent with Seth's +4 location. (I ended up mounting mine at +5). You'll find much more control being more centered in the rocker (which is aggressive) without sacrificing much in the way of floatation. The forward mount, in my experience, dampened up the ski and provides a great example of why hand-flexing is misleading, as well as quickened up the skis and provided a better landing platform for airs, which are all big positives. This board was made to be forward mounted as even the top sheet spacing in the graphics suggests.

Most high-end jackets you will find will have the best quality gore-tex, taped seams etc... but what really sets this jacket aside from the rest is it's storm hood. Unlike The North Face jackets, or even the Sidewinder SV, the Alpha SV provides significantly better protection for the face, and the hood fits any helmet (I wear a size 8 baseball hat -- 64cm). I have previously owned jackets (TNF etc) that will collapse in the front of the face at the top of the zipper providing no face protection during wind experienced while skiing...something you will not experience w/ the SV... and it's storm hood stood up to the challenge as violent winds rolled in while skiing La Grave. Hands down the best jacket out there. Incredibly warm, waterproof (water beads off it), comfortable, and overall just a damn good looking jacket. Mountain guides will tell you, it's the #1 jacket out there. Worth the extra price.
