Only difference between our setups is his bindings end at the boards edge, and his boots have an upward curve on both ends.

However my bindings have a strange shape and when angled, they have base plate overhang too. My rear binding is +6 and has no overhang, while forward binding is +15 and has 0.25in base plate overhang. Also my boots don't really have an upward curve.

So on the carpet test I can get up to about a 35 degree angle either side. Anything above is a no go.

Dunno if this will be an issue, and if it is, if it could be remedied by trading the L/XL binding for a M/L. Just don't know if it would fit, as the M/L is rated for 10 boot max.
Hi Crimzn,

With the gear posted above you do not have to worry about a toe/heel drag problem at all at those angles. You owe it to yourself however to at least try riding with equal toe and heel overhang. It can make an enormous difference in your riding. Having a full inch more overhang on one edge than another is far from ideal and I would highly suggest adjusting that.

What arbor board do you have? I was looking at the roundhouse r x

You simply set things up so you can achieve the same board angulation on both toe and heel side of the board. This will allow you to turn as aggressively on both edges.
