it's just that I have found that most of my chatter problems on heelside would occur on steeper slopes. Higher speed = more energy that blows out when the wave stalls = harder to compensate.
sure your butt is close to the ground, but tell that to my tailbone that skipped across the run because I was going mach 2. lol

Here's me trying to euro carve with a duck stance (+21 -9). I don't think it is necessary to use a forward stance but I can see how it is easier. And if you see almost all the best turners in snowboarding have forward stance (e.g. Craig Kelly, Terje, Jake Blauvelt).

That is a flatter trail, I wasn't posting it to show off the terrain.
I don't have any pics on steep terrain.
Luckily, if the edge does give out, you butt isn't very far off the snow!

Is it just me or does that run look very flat?
Also, if that edge blows out you are coming down square on your tailbone like I did last weekend, lol. My GF is still giving me shit about that one.

Note the hips are level or slightly below the knees...

Does this count as carving ducked? Im at +15,-12 I believe..on an Evo :-)

For what it's worth, in my profile pic I am riding a duck stance(15,-12) a salomon special(was similar to a burton custom). I have a few of me in a deep heelside carve that I can try and post later tonight.
The thing for me that was a real revelation for a solid heelside carve in duck stance was angulate such that your hips are even with or preferably below your knees right at the top of the turn.
I think that technique can overcome the shortcomings of duck for carving just like technique can overcome the shortcomings of riding switch with a forward stance. I rode forward angles for years but switched to duck for more versatility.
