Uh...binding settings is so subjective. My only advice is to start binding settings about shoulder width apart and tweak from there.

I'm just curious why you all of a sudden want to change your setup... It seems that you are rather capable and that your current setup isnt exactly holding you back....

What gives?

i also agree, but i would just guess and say start with your stance perfectly in the middle, and at a 15/-15. thats like exactly middle, probably no where near perfect for most people, but its a good place to start off of and make adjustments with.

my reasoning for wanting to change my setting was it was never really "chosen" i got my 1st board from someone i know and it was their setting and never changed it so it never was my feeling for the board
