Post Question on setback and binding placement

Hi, i just bought a new board with a 2.5 inch setback but when put my bindings on the center holes it doesn't feel right. my board has 8 holes you can put bindings in...im guessing its standard. it looks like this :::: haha. i was wondering if i can put my bindings for my front foot on the first 2 holes and for my back foot the first 2 holes also, that way there is not as much setback and i am more centered? can i do this? and if not is there anyway i can take away from the setback?

by the way, its an all-mountain board. a SIMS Oath 157 i believe its called
also i was wondering if its bad to have a duck stance with a setback of 2.5 inches. that's the main reason i want to center myself on the board.

It is not recommended to put your bindings in front of the center of the sidecut.

The inserts are set back for a reason.

Try the middle set for both feet. It'll be a standard placement that the mfg suggests. Once you've gotten the board on he hill and find something else might be better, change it if you want.
