Going to be using this ski as a mostly inbounds/sidecountry ski aimed at skiing pow and dropping some decent size airs. What kind of beta do you all have on mounting position? I've heard +3 might ski short, but thinking I might want that extra tail when dropping cliffs. Also, does the new graphic run into the discrepencies on where the mounting points fall like last year's model did?

So I finally got my SFBs mounted with some dukes. Had them out in some variable conditions this weekend and thought they handled it all well. From pockets of powder on the groomers to 8 inches of fresh behind the ropes to skied out crud, they felt smooth and in control at all times. When really trying to carve and make a quick powerful turn on the hard stuff you can feel them want to give a little, but they never felt overly soft or sloppy. I would highly reccomend these as an everyday powder oriented ski. Unless you really want to crank some super G turns down ice packed runs, these are your skis.

I am 6'1'' 175 lbs and a 8.5-9/10 skier. I enjoy skiing fast and aggressively. On my resort skis, I am currently at a 10 DIN but that is just for everyday cruising and small resort jumps. I will be setting these up on some fat skis for touring this year and plan on hitting some decent sized cliffs and backcountry booters. I will obviously be cranking my DIN up for these instances but am not sure to what point. Any advice on whether I will need the increased DIN of the dukes or will the Barons do the job?

I'm looking at these skis for a backcountry touring setup with some dukes. Will use them for CO backcountry as well as deep resort days. Is this a good choice? Some concerns are:a)A/T binding will rip out of wood coreb) Ski is too soft for variable conditions in BCc) 182 may be too short (6'1'' 180; strong all around skier)Any help would be greatly appreciated as well as other possible reccomendations.

For willie2272186:I saw in an earlier question you said you chose the Line Sir Francis Bacons over these skis. This is exactly the two pairs of skis I am trying to choose between. Could you possibly elaborate on the differences for me. I am 6'1'' 175 and looking to use these as an A/T setup for backcountry touring and deep resort days. Thanks for the help. Any other reccomendations would also be appreciated.
