Default Binding Angles?

I was curious as to what angles everyone has on their binding setup? I know before I had a 21 inch stance on my board with old bindings, I am re-mounting my new bindings and wanting a duck stance with my back foot not so tweaked out.

I ride 18/-15 23 inches wide. I'm 5'8. For angles, play around. More angle in your back foot will help with switch riding. Typically I like my back foot 3 to 9 degrees lower of an angle than my front foot. Also depends on my riding. 18/-15 is good for jibbing, but for my all mountain pipe board, I ride more around 12/-9 22inches wide. I've had everything from 6/-6 to 9/-6, 15/-12, 15/-15, 12/-12, 6/0...And I'm sure I'll change my angles again this year probably 3 or 4 times, on each board.

I will try and mount them that way and mess around on the board on my carpet.

That's what I do, just make sure you wax your board before you go. Carpet dries out your base

Is that a pretty good stance for all riders? I'm a pip-squeak, 5-foot nuthin freerider. Don't want anything to aggressive, but I do want to get as much power out through my board as my wee little legs will allow.

i have 15,-15
feels comfy , don't like the 18,-15
doesn't feel good switch.
its like they already mentioned , everybody has his own taste.
btw it depents what style you snowboard.
if you like alpine snowboarding= 21,18 (for example)
so first figure out what you want to do with your board
