I'm stuck in a vicious cycle of tweaking my bindings. It seems like the more i tweak, the less sure i get about what i'm trying to do. I'm thankfully pretty happy with my stance width. Right now, i'm totally unsure of what i should be trying to center widthwise on my board. My boots are size 10.5 burton rulers, and my bindings are L/XL Rome 390s. My board is a never summer legacy-r 159
The binding allows me to adjust the heel cup in 3 positions. the largest is clearly too large because i can't strap in so i rule that out. the middle setting allows me to strap in, but i basicly have the toe strap tightened all the way down and feel like i'd like to crank it a little more, but can't. The smallest setting feels the best as i can get the toe strap centered on my toe and crank it down and still have some notches left. I kind of think that's what fits my boot best.
Here's my dillema. When i mount the binding in the recomended way (the holes on the disk running parallel to the length of the board) it seems like maybe i have too much toe hang. So i've opted to turn the disk so the holes are perpendicular to the board and move it towards heelside one hole. I think this centers me more, but to be honest i'm not sure what i'm looking to center.
when i put the binding heel cup into the middle position, visually it looked like the boot itself was more centered on the board. When i put it in the smaller position i feel more secure in it and ride better, but visually it looks like i have a lot of toe hang.
should i be trying to center the whole boot so the same amount of boot is on either side of the centerline? should i be trying to center where my heel and ball of my foot rest so the centerline would run right between them? should i be trying to center the binding on the board? Is some toe hang ok? Since i'm at the point of moving just a couple cm in either direction is this even anything that matters?
here's some images of how i have it mounted right now.
