Jones Carbon Flagship, need help to setup

Just stumbled on a close out sale and bought a 164 Carbon Flagship as my first board, with some NOW IPO and Burton IONs.
my first 5 days snowboarding has been a howl and progression quick.(+30 yrs skiing, skateboarding and Kitesurfing might have helped ?!)

I've tried two diffferent setups 1" setback and 22" +15/0 at first , and later on the marks 23,5" +18/0. With the latest setup the board turn almost by itself on the groomed stuff but was harder to handle in untracked stuff.

Scanning the forums I understand you can ride with almost any setup and it's a matter of getting used to one.

BUT as I now have to chance to start out "right" from the start and learn from everyone else, I would be extremly greatful for any tips on the ideal setup for this board (should there be one)

I'm 6'6" 210 if that could be a factor choosing the correct setup
