Also bought wife a 155 feel good V, I set it up 1.5" back of centre, any suggestion if I should move this forward or leave it. Shes intermediate and I think she will not tinker with her stance, so I would like to get it right the first time and leave it.
Stick with the reference stance - that is already like .5" set back on the Raptor... so having it all the way back would be like 2" in reality. The board designers already considered what the best setback woudl be for you. You should not have any float issues with that 169 cm so I don't see the need to add additional setback.

For you wife, again... use the reference stance. 1.5" setup back is extremely and would only be good for deep powder riding and will be detrimental to any regular snowboarding she will be doing (i.e. don't do it!)
