Pretty solid choice of a ski. I like mine for what they were designed to do. Good luck on turning them. They "turn" but... you know. You've got the skillz to do it, if anyone around here. Grip and rip!

Good to hear from you! Hope all is well with you and yours.
I too mounted mine with NNN-BC at balance point (BP).connyro wrote: ↑Thu Sep 10, 2020 5:36 pmSo where did you mount them? The 78s don't seem to have any markings and the Fischer site offers nothing that's obvious. So I turn to the collective knowledge of ttalk. Pin line on balance point or chord center? Somewhere else? I'll be using the 78s for touring and some turns in soft conditions. NNN-BC bindings with alpina Alaska boots.
If my memory serves me- and please correct me if I am wrong- but I remember CC and BP being pretty much exactly the same on this ski?
I did not consider moving them ahead for more grip and easier turn initiation.
Woods' idea of mounting them aft of BP is interesting- and a cool idea. At -1cm they should definitely glide better with the heel down in pure XC mode.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.
