Default Buttering

Wondering which is more ideal/optimal for binding screw/hole position for buttering.

1) Screw holes closest to both ends of the board
2) Middle screw holes
3) Screw holes closest to centre of the board

Less tip and tail is less board to support your press. But reality is a comfortable stance is most important. Butters is all about technique not binding posotion unless your rocking a crazy carve stance.

I guess it would depend on how stiff the board is and where you prefer your center of balance to be...

I usually go +1 or 2" of shoulder width, but you could have really wide or narrow shoulders so it's hard to say

The wider your stance is, the easier it is to lift your nose or tail on the ground. So if you are able to ride normally with your bindings in the biggest stance possible, you will be able to butter very easily. However, butters are more about your balance. So with a good balance you can do butters, no matter where the bindings are. First you just have to find the limits of the board, how far you can lean before falling etc.
