Default binding adjustment question

I just got a pair of Ride vxn's and I'm trying to mount them on my board. I can do it fine as is, but the footpad sticks out a little beyond my toe. I tried shifting the highback up a notch on the heel cup, but then the highback doesn't rest on the heel cup properly. So should I leave it on the original setting and have some of the footpad sticking beyond my toe and overhanging my board, or should I let the highback sit on the heel cup at a funny angle?

Do those bindings have an adjustable toe ramp? If so, make sure they're adjusted all the way in.

What size boots do you wear and what size are the bindings? Definitely weird that your toe ramp is extending beyond your boot. I'm thinking your bindings are simply too big unless the toe ramp is extended all the way out. You shouldn't be adjusting the highback to address toe ramp issues.

Nope, toe ramp isn't adjustable. I'm a size 7.5 and wearing a size M binding, within the recommended range of the size chart. I also moved the heel cup of my old bindings, which then made the binding fit a lot better. I can't adjust the heel cup of these, but I can move the highback...

I don't understand how the toe is overhanging the board.

What size board is it? Medium bindings really arent that big.

waist width = 236

I guess the toe pad sticking out bothers me about as much as the fact that I have to put my screws in at the end of the screw hole channel thing to keep my boots centered. Not a huge deal but I was just wondering which of my two options was better.

Well you should center your boot on the binding then center your binding on the board. Not put your bindings on and center your boots on the board.

So I should move the highback in so my boot is centered on the binding? Even if this means that the highback is no longer flush with the heel cup?

Gonna bump this and see if anyone else has an opinion. Otherwise I'm just gonna have to hope I don't end up with too much binding overhanging my board.

I'm not following, did you move the heelcup back or the highback inside of the heelcup? They are 2 different adjustments

Right, the boot should be centered in the bindings, then the bindings centered on the board. Thats how I always do it.
