t21 had 15/-3 all last season and felt good with it, but change to -6 this year and its much better except i have not tried it on steeps/bumps yet since our upper mountain is not open yet. that little change did help my switch riding a bit in terms of comfort.

Sim79 I was using +15,-15 but changed to +17,-17 this setup feels more natural to me, this is on a swallow tail powder board so I can't ride switch.
I started my first 10 years off boarding with my rear foot a lot closer to zero but always had fare bit of pain in my rear leg, once I turned the rear foot further out it reduced my leg pain a lot.

yeah... i have my bindings on the farthest screws. i'll try to bring the bindings in one each and see if i can ride this way... just felt my knees were too close and i'd damage them.

alright so I finally got to try my board out at 15/-15 today. It only took 1 run for me to feel comfortable in it. It was actually a very CLEAN feeling.

1.) had to set bindings to the FARTHEST holes on my board. Or else it feels like my knees are too close... maybe I'm still riding weird.

2.) because the bindings are so far out I can't land on my tail on jumps (i use it to cushion the fall). Nor can I use the tail to pop really well or butter.

On the plus side rode Switch all the way down the mountain today!! woo!

I still feel more dominant on +/+ bindings but I'm going to keep the +15/-15. Maybe I'll try bringing the bindings in a bit again... do I need EQUAL tail and nose??

WHOisDAN I felt less stable landing jumps when I changed my stance to +15/-15.

It does make switch a lot more enjoyable.

Fair enough, seems like solid reasons to go with it.
