Question regarding how forward or back bindings should be
Hey guys, first post here. been boarding in upstate ny and vermont for about 10 years now. It's pathetic but my first deck was purchased when i was 18, which was a LIQUID UNIVERSE 158. I've out-progressed it by probably 50 times. I've still managed to dominate it, and learned to overcome its horrible shortcomings. Anyway, I finally picked up a burton wide body today, and I just put on my K2 bindings. I never noticed this before, but I had no idea my bindings were able to slide back towards the heelside of the board. Not talking setback, but actually moving the binding center of gravity back. I moved it all the way back and it didnt feel any different, but I may have felt a little bit of weakness when leaning forward toeside. Maybe i'm just used to my toe drag, but it felt like i was not really getting a quick response when leaning forward. Mind you this was done in my living room and not on a mountain, so my question is, should i just leave the bindings the way they were like on my old snowboard, or should i slide the binding mount/back piece back to completely eliminate toedrag ? Will this dampen my toe side effe. edge? Or are they simply for people that have large feet like myself (size 12) and will not hinder ones performance in anyway? Sorry for this confusing post, i'm just trying to see if its just my imagination that i'm losing my toeside edge, or if this would really cause a difference in carving.
Thanks in advance.
