too much toe over hang?

I am attaching a link to my pics of my boots in my bindings, here are my specs.
Boot: rome bodega size 11
Binding: flow flite 3 large
Board 160 flow merc 2009 25.3cm

Feb 1, 2010 - a set on Flickr

I rode yesterday and felt some toe drag... can i shift my binding around change the degree right now they're set a -15 in the front and 3 in the back. Should I get more heel on the back?

the boot is not centered on the board. You need to push your bindings back a notch or two.

You don't need to change the degree, you can use the same angles. But instead of screwing the bindings into the center of the base plate push the base plate back a little so that there is the same amount of heel overhang as toe overhang.
