Rome Arsenal set up question

OK, I'm trying to set up my new rome arsenals with my northwave legend boots. This is my first time setting up bindings and I need a little help. The arsenal has an adjustable toe pad and the manual says that it should be adjusted so it is under the boots "TOE SPRING" and I have NO idea what the boots toe spring is..... Also I have the S/M bindings with a size 7.5 mens boot which is right in the middle of the bindings three length adjustments. Since I'm new at this not sure which setting is right, in the middle position it looks to me like the toe hangs out past the front edge of the binding too much, but in the longer position of course the heel sticks out a little further. If anyone has a picture of what a properly adjusted Rome arsenal looks like with a boot in it, or any advice other than taking it to a shop to get mounted would be great. Thanks.

The "toe-spring" is right where the boot bends in the toe area when you walk. And when you adjust your bindings, make sure they look centered, and you should be ok.

Boaderaholic, thanks for the explanation of "toe spring". I think I'm pretty dialed in, but could you look at these pictures and give me your opinion? Thanks again.

LOL, yeah I figured the pictures would give you a better idea of where I was at. So now that you squared me away on getting the bindings set up for the boots, maybe you can help me out with a stance width question. I'm 65" tall and my shin bone measurement is 20.5" so based on some stuff I've read, I should start out with a stance width of about 19-20 inches correct? Is this the distance measured from the inside, outside or the center of the bindings? Since I've only rented in the past, I'm not sure how this is all determined.

I dunno how wide you should set it. I'd start shoulder width apart and just tweak from there. As for how width is measured, it's from center of binding to center of the other binding.
