Default Question about centering bindings

Okay, so tonight I was bored and decided to put my new bindings on my new board.
I have never put non-Burton bindings on a board before (yeah I know).

The new bindings are Rome 390s, so anyway I put them on at 15/-15 as usual.
It looks weird because the big toe part of the binding is hanging about 1/4 of an inch over the edge of the board, and the heel part is like 1/4 of an inch away from the other edge - i.e. the binding doesn't look centered.
I strapped in one of my boots and it looks pretty centered - there is slight overhang at toe and heel edge. Am I doing something wrong? and can I do anything to correct this.
(I realise a photo would be a big help, but I am having trouble with photobucket at the moment. I'll upload one as soon as I can)

I've never had an issue with the slight overhang of the toe ramp on my 390's over the years. As long as the boot is centered relative to the board within the binding you'll be fine. You're not doing anything wrong. If you tilt the board with the boots in the binding you'll see how much of a severe angle you need to ever have an issue. What size/year 390's and make/model of board?

They are the large size 390s, and the board is a 156 Agent(both 08/09) I'm really struggling to upload this photo!

You'll be okay unless you have a very narrow stance. If you're really concerned with the binding overhang, you can turn the mounting disc perpendicular and move the heelcup to center the binding as you want. There are a ton of adjustments you can make. Don't be afraid to have at it.

Turn 90 degrees to right and slide one notch back.

That should work

Ah now I understand, not accustomed to such adjustable bindings. Thanks again.

Your bindings are supposed to hang more in the front. It's about how the boot is centered that matters. Put your boots in and if over hang is equal on both sides then you have it right..
