Thanks for the info. I took my board out a couple of nights ago and I tried to go deep on the edge and I didn't feel any drag. I think the cut of the board and the angle of boots is a good match. It's just throws me off a little having about an inch on each side. I am going back out tomorrow and I will dig as deep as I can and finally put this thread to rest. I think I will feel the drag and not get thrown outta control, that is considering my speed and how fast I go into the carve.

Great, thanks. If posible can you take some pics of your boots strapped in from underneath? Again, no pics and info is cool, but pics and review I will greatly appreciate it.

Any chance that you can post pictures with your boots strapped in showing your overhang with the 260?
I'm really trying to find someone in a similiar situation with my build/boot size that can give me a similiar idea of what to expect.

I don't think you have much to worry about there. You most likely could get a bit of toe drag if carving aggressively but overall it shouldn't be a problem.

Just make sure you are centered over the mid-line which looks like you are, this helps you initiate either edge with about the same amount of effort. One of the problems with going to a board that is too wide is that it takes more effort to get 'on edge'. I would say that toe-edge is harder to get on and stay on for many people, especially beginners, and especially if their bindings aren't set up right or if their board is too wide. One should be able to roll from edge to edge without having to recruit your toes forcefully, and by having a bit of overhang changes the lever and thus makes it easier to initiate that edge.
