Default binding setup dilema

basically I have a choice to make, due to the burton 3d system I can either have a 21 inch stance at 25cm back or I can have a 20inch stance with the front binding moved back to make I think 50mm back setback. I really am more comfortable in the 20 inch stance, but will that much setback on my burton custom x wide make the board handle awkwardly? I can tolerate the 21inch stance if need be, but it is not my first choice. At barely 5'7'' and having shorter legs I dont have a lot of options. I would appreciate any input. Thanks

Setback doesn't work quite that way. BOTH bindings are setback 25cm. I'm not sure your board size, but I'm assuming the reference holes are a 21", 25cm back. If that be the case, you would need to move BOTH bindings forward one set of holes (1" or 25cm) to have a 21" centered stance. If you would like a 20" stance, you can either:

Move your back binding forward one set of holes = 20" 12.5cm setback
Move your front binding back one set of holes = 20" 37.5cm setback

scottland has it right. Remember all you need is 3 points to make a plane.

Thanks for the help, I was getting confused. Do you or anyone think that there would be much change in how the board rides if I decided to go with the 20inch stance with the 37.5cm setback? I have a buston custom x 159. I would appreciate the input.

You should be fine. I have a custom that I ride set back further than that for my woods board. It rides fine. You can always try a run each way to see what you prefer.

LOL, you guys knew what I meant =)

As for which setup to go with.

If you plan on riding switch often, the 12.5mm,
If you don't plan on riding switch often, and mostly freeride, 37.5mm.

This is exactly why Burton boards drive me crazy, this and the price. I know they want to be original and avoid being mainstream but the customer suffers with limited stance options compared to "normal" boards.

How close are the inserts on a "normal" Board. those are still 1" away from each other arent they. how does that limit their stance options. Burtons work with less inserts to break up the structure of the board.
