I rode +24 / +9 for years and tried duck for the first time last season. After a 1-run relearning curve, I linked more perfectly carved turns in the next run than I had all season. It's a personal thing for sure, but I would wholeheartedly disagree with anyone saying you can't carve with a duck stance. It seems to fit my bow-leggedness just fine.
