09/10 EVO-R setback question..

Well, I got my 151 EVO-R. I'm headed out tomorrow to test it out. It's a "twin tipped" board as stated on the website. I thought it was a true twin as well. I understand a true twin is measured by the symmetry of the base, irrespective of binding mounting, but doesn't the fact that the stance has a slight setback kind of eliminate why you would want a twin board?

I measured and there is no centered stance on the board. If I match the holes on each foot, it has 3/4 inch of setback. If I move the front binding up, the nose then becomes shorter than the tail by a little bit, which is bad. So IF it's a true twin, I should just turn my bindings around so the tail becomes the nose and it's slightly longer?

EDIT: Question answered, but I'll keep it up since I learned something new. Talked to NS. Basically, it's measured by effective edge (Uh durrr, I should have known this). As I said above, I knew that it was based on a symmetry that was irrespective of the mounting holes, but now I know what to look for. If you look at the effective edge, where it ends, there will be a gap. So the effective edge is twin. The dude at NS said probably not to switch the bindings around backward because of the core profile. And since the effective edge is all that matters, setback is irrelevant when it comes to measuring the mounting points according to the tip and tail.
