ETM I was going to put my bindings back far as possible again, but had a thought that this might be pointless now. I might have too much weight now on the rear off board and loose too much float.
Having the bindings central might balance the board out better?

Have you played around with binding postions since doing the chop?
Do you still run your bindings back as far as possible?
yeah I played around with it a lot, thats one thing I like about the channel with normal disc bindings because you can get crazy with setback. Im sure this is very personal but I ended up at 100mm setback in relation to the sidecut radius.
When you try it out you will find that the closer you get your back foot to the cut out the more control you get in the powder. I can still ride it on hard pack easily with 100mm set back.
