For the record I do ride duck. Pretty mellow stance. +-15. I don't do much switch, but the real advantage for me is being able to squat down very low with the duck stance. I ride very tight trees from time to time in Colorado and getting under low branches is just a reality. Forward angle stances block that.
You have a pretty strong influence... you made me change my angles for the first time in many many years, actually the first time below +15 at all (my guys winced as I adjusted the bindings).

Rode with +15/0 today and was comfortable with it. Spring has entered very fast, it was raining and only slush to ride in lower parts of the resort. Typical surf and straight line day. Anyhow I was pretty astonished, how little the (in my opinion drastic) change of angles affected my riding. Seems that they play a less important role than I thought. Will change to minus degrees tomorrow and try to ride switch haha, the guys will have a big fun day
