sry... my comment was semi-retarted... Basically saying that if the reference points are moved back a half-inch, then you're at a disadvantage riding switch, because they'd be moved forward a half inch, toward a smaller, stiffer end. Then again, if your binding angles aren't equally ducked, then could it be easier to ride switch on a directional board with bindings setup as like +12/-6, when regular, therefore 6/-12 when switch, as opposed to +9/-9 both ways?

i'm not really sure if that makes any more sense though...

Should also these little movements be symmetrical (ie, moving bindings on opposite direction)? Or, once the 2 bindings are on exact holes, I can play with them and move them both on the same direction for example?

thanks a lot in advance
anyone on this?

You don't have to have them symmetrical. But you may change your set-back on your board. If your move both bindings out or inward, you are adding or subtracting an inch to your stance width (1/2" both sides). If you leave the front binding in the center and move the back binding all the way back, you are setting yourself 1/4" back from whatever insert setback you're on. Or you can move both of them back to give yourself an additional 1/2" of setback. Just depends what you're looking for. I generally move them symmetrically unless I'm in pow and am looking for as much set-back as I can manage.
