Default Vertical or horizontal mounting?

How do you guys mount your binding baseplates to your snowboard?

Horizontal or vertical?

I like horizontal because I can adjust my width to a more specific number.

Also sometimes people use vertical because their bindings don't center with the board's width. I have a friend who does vertical cause of that problem.

Good to know it doesn't matter. I had installed my Fluxes and then looked at the manual and had to reinstall them. My first time setting up, followed every instruction haha.

Vertical (transverse?) mounting is good in case the binding is too far toward one edge or the other. It allows compensation for this.

snowolf and cheese nailed it. I have small feet so I often have to mount them horizontally to center the boots over the board.

And if you mount them vertically, you can center them better.

I cut them into a 12 slice pie and then shuffle them, reconfigure it back into a disc and mount it upside down.
