help with stance angles on new set up

just picked up ride ex bindings for my carbon credit i got a couple of months ago. what do u guys think is a good starting point to set up my bindings. last year was my first season. i upgraded from a k2 camber board with burton freestyle bindings which were set at +12 and -9. i was gonna set it the same as last years but wanted to know what u guys though and tweek from there. going to kllington tomorrow to start the season early.

Stance angles is all personal preference. Noone can tell you what is going to be best for you besides yourself. If it matters I run 17 -15. See you out at Killington tomorrow

17? What bindings are you riding?

And to OP... whatever feels good to your knees. Don't listen to anyone but your knees. If all your buddies ride duck at 9 and -9 don't think that is what you have to do. I ride 15 -15 and my knees are happy.

As stated above, it's all about what feels right. Start with what you used last year and tweak it from there. I personally ride 13 -13 and that's what feels most comfortable to me.

Pray for an early start to the season!
