Hm... I might want to try this combo canting. I just came back from a trip and did a little playing around to find my comfort zone. I've tried a few different combinations and have so far landed at 27/9 with 2.5 canting on both sides. I tried 27/12 with 5.0 canting but it felt like my back leg had hit a wall that prevented me from swinging by back leg around. I'll have to do a little more playing around though. I'd like to eventually go more forward and become more carve oriented.

Thanks everyone for the input.
