|SnowDogWax||My normal stance is +15 -9 with a 24.5 inch width. On the XV I started with keeping the setback stance that was on the board. I'll give that stance one more day. Seeing that this is only the third day ever for a positive stance set-up. I plan on trying +45 - 35 tomorrow which Carver's Almanac gives as the norm for GS racing.|

|SnowDogWax||Today at Jay peak had my Rossi 167 XV set up at +37 +27 only did 4 runs on groomers, will continue for the next 9 days. Last week on a 164 Krypto had a +27 +9. Krypto was no problem, like I never skipped a beat. Today was just a little unstable, especially on the heel side. Will be switching to a stiffer boot tomorrow which should help. Looking to develop a stance for GS racing in the next day or so, then practice, practice.|

I have ridden a mellow forward stance since I started. F+18 R+3
I a couple weekends ago I did some kind of injury to my back foot ankle while boarding...pushed my toes up too far towards my shin...and now I have a limited range of movement in that direction before I get some sharp pains. Ever heard of snowboarder's ankle? I think I got close to that and bruised or strained something.
Anyways my meager point is, I moved my back binding to about a -3 angle and while I don't feel it affected my riding in any way, it actually did wonders to relieve stress on my ankle while on my toe edge.
