Yep. I double checked, it's 0.787%

Mystery2many 161/8.5 boot. What is your weight? That's a big board. I hope it's for powder or free riding or high speed carving.

You have no detrimental overhang. Actually not even close to any.

neni Honestly, your OP suggested for me as well that you're concerned about overhang and my thirst thought looking at the pics was "this looks pretty perfect". Go ride it and have fun!
BTW: beatiful board

F1EA Boots, bindings, board are fine.

Maybe move the bindings a bit towards heelside if you want to have them more perfectly centered. But it looks fine as it is.

2mm at the waist mean nothing. And... did you really calculate it's 0.8% ??!! It's actually 0.79%.
That was a waste of time. Not only 2mm are nothing, but If the other board has a different sidecut then those 2mm will have no impact on the width under your feet.

Martinduc Heh I know 2mm is nothing but if my current setup would be completly off I would at least try to minimize the boat feeling by sizing down

Any opinions?

The difference between a 254 and 256 mm waist width board is 0.8% think you'll feel that?

For what it's worth, most boards I ride are right around the 25.0 cm mark and I have size 8 boots. I picked up a Nitro Slash 166 cheap this fall expecting it to handle like a boat, but it's a lot of fun! 26.4 cm waist width...
