Ideal setup for all mountain

Tried searching this but didn't find much help.

So I know the typical response is going to be... do what works for you and try whatever setup til you find one you like, but I was curious to find out what other all mountain riders set their bindings at. I had mine set up at a 15/0. Is there more of a default setup that most freeriders use? just curious.

what's your setup and what do you ride?

Mine changes for conditions and whether or not I am in a freestyle mode. Course I might be a weird person for changing my stance due to conditions. But each stance feels better for those conditions when I ride them.

Icy:
18/6 for just carving
15/-3 for more freestyle mode

Decent Groomed:
16/3 for carving mode
15/-8 for freestyle mode

Powder:
21/6 for carving mode
15/-9 for freestyle mode

The season is almost upon us!!!!

I use +21/+9 for all mountain. I've been riding this for over 10 years, and I've been riding a forward stance for 15 years. Not sure what the width is, as I usually go one setting out from the inner most holes and it's always worked great.

This past week was the first time I went past 0 on my rear binding. My new park set up is +15/-9. I had to go out to the garage to look, because I wasn't sure. When i set them up, I didn't really pay attention to angles, I just set them to what felt right. I'm surprised, I would have thought my rear was at least a -12. It was a lot different, and I really had to change my style. I don't know how people can ride all mountain duck, you guys are nuts!

Yeah I found forward stance less fatiguing but it's less stable. I ride duck everywhere now.

One stance everywhere: 24" wide, 24/-18, highbacks rotated parallel with heal edge. Only thing that changes is the setback: centered on park board (Un Inc), ~.5" ish back on all mountain (Custom X), 2" back on powder board (Malolo).

I messed with my angles earlier this year and dropping my front foot down to 15 or 18 felt really weird. I didn't think a few degrees would do that.
