Default Extra wide stance and T-bolting for freestyle

Hey guys just wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences to mine.

Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 150 lbs
Board: Rome Reverb Rocker 154
Bindings: Burton Cartels
Boots: Salomon Dialogue
Stance Angles: +18/-15
Stance Width: 24 1/4in maxed
I ride a split of park and all mountain freestyle.

So for the most part I love my reverb rocker it has great flex and pop and fits my riding style great. However, something that has always bugged me a little about it is even maxed out I feel like I wish I could widen my stance just a little. I also have an artifact 153 that maxes out at 25 1/4 and I def liked it more. I feel like i'm really starting to dial in my riding and think a bit wider will be my zen stance. I've got back and front 3s with Indys on lock along with methods and just now getting heavy into landing blind putting down 5s and switching up my grabs learning more tail and nose stuff. I feel like a wider stance will help my spin initiation and one footed stability while buttering transitioning ect. as well as reach my grabs better.

Even as I write this I'm putting serious consideration into running over to my local shop and getting some t-bolts put on the outside of both sets of inserts on my board to achieve the feel I want. Does anyone have experience with getting T-bolts and or working out ways to widen their stance?

Anything is appreciated! Thanks for reading!
