Binding placement
 
So I put them on this morning the Union dlx for my lead foot (left) I set it to +12 and -6 I was wondering about the overhang and wanted to know if this looks ok on here, I know the toe strap is a little off because I haven't moved it to the other hole yet.

*edit

I ended up moving the heel cups forward one which seems to help

I guess they must be good then.

I set them +15/-9

Hard to tell for sure from the photos... but I think you may have a little too much heel overhang. I would prob move the bindings one hole towards the toe edge and see how it looks.

The last phone is the one you are talking about right? the others before that had no adjustments the last one I moved forward one.

Looking at the picture of your base plate it looks like you may have one more spot to to move the bindings towards the toe edge. I would try that.

Yeah but won't the front of the binding be hanging over the board then?

The goal is to have the the binding centered on the board, equal toe and heel overhang, I'd move it up one hole.

Well it seems to look better, I ended up moving the gas pedal all the way out because I had a gap so it fits flush now under the toe.

I think you meant the goal is to have the boot centered on the board - depending on the set-up that might or might not imply having the binding centered.

That looks a lot better. Your boots seem pretty bulky for those bindings though - what are the respective sizes?

Also, any particular reason why you are running the toe strap over the top rather than capstrap style?
