Default Correct SETUP??

I already have my NS Heritage 160 but I still don't have the new bindings for her. However I mounted my old Raiden Strike Bindings with my boots and I would like to hear your opinions If I Will have problems with toe/Heel drag or if with this amount of overhang I won't have problems. The stance I opened at maximum and the angles are 15/-15.
I sent some photos in order that you can see and give your opinion.
This bindings was just to check the overhang, I will buy new ones but still deciding if the Rome Targa or the Union Factory.
Best regards

they look fine to me. be careful with the Targa bindings. not all boots fit them. if you can, take your boots to a local shop to see if they will fit in the bindings. other than that, they're nice bindings. i use them. i don't think you would have any trouble with the Union bindings though. what kind of boots do you have? and what size are they? i wear a size 11 US and thirtytwo, vans, and i think DC boots were too wide for my Targa bindings and i have the biggest sized Targa bindings that they make.

Thanks for your help, I have a pair of K2 Thraxis size 11.5 US I also have an old pair of Salomon Faction but my intention is to use the K2 Thraxis and they have a larger footprint than the salomon. That's the reason I was a little worried about the toe/heel drag I know that for the next time I buy new boots if I choose a model with a reduced footprint I won't have problems.
But regarding the bindings which one do you think will fit better on this board and boots, the Rome Targa 2014 or the Union Factory.
Wich one will elevate more my boots (thicker footbed/ramp angle)? I ask this because If I elevate my boots it will allow me more angle to carve.
Best regards

What do you mean with Lithuanian carve? I made a search on google and if you are refering to extreme carving where the guy's touch with the entire body on the snow, No I can't carve like them, but I like to do some steep terrain and like to have a good edge hold on that if I need to stop in the middle.
Best regards

i can't speak for the Union bindings because i've never used union bindings but the Targas sit fairly high up. when i first set up my bindings i had the discs set parallel to the screw holes on my board and my toes hung way too far off so i had to turn the discs perpendicular and set my bindings back towards the heel edge. easy fix. my toes or heels have never touched the ground while carving. i ride a Rome Anthem 163 so the Targa bindings would fit your board no problem. even though i never used Union bindings i don't see why they would be a problem either. just check the sizing specs for each of them to make sure you get the right size for you boot size. again though, i highly recommend you make sure your boots fit right in the targa and union factory bindings before you make any purchase. if you can't find a local shop that has them then i'd suggest buying them both online (at the same time) and then just return the ones you like the least.
