i'm appreciative of the advice.

my friends always told me, "hey if you want to butter, you need to MAX out your stance, but i see your logic.

i'll report back soon.

hopefully 23.5 -> 20 isn't too drastic!
Not gonna lie it's going to feel weird at first. If you don't like it head up to 21.

Correct. From center to center.

Yeah stance width might be your issue I'm 6' tall and 210 pounds riding 161 wides. I ride a 24" stance. 23.5" waaaaay too big for you probably!

Cobra Generally, yea. Shorter and lighter is easier to maneuver. I'm 5'11" and I had a 167 Rossi, now I have 156 and its a world of difference.

Mooz As stated a wide stance isn't something you do to butter. It's what you setup when you can't stay centered. Also at your height you are BEGGING for a knee injury that wide. Take it down a notch. 22 is too wide. Go with 21 and see how that works for you on the snow.

QReuCk Actually, 22 is still wide for someone of your height.
Basically, the wide stance has a purpose, and it's not style: it helps you staying centered on your board.
I don't think you will suffer from a 22" stance for buttering. It could even help you get more off-centered.

theorist thanks. i adjusted it. feels weird but obviously i have been riding 23.5 for years so i guess i'll have to get used to being at 22.

i'm glad someone told me that my stance was too wide. i never thought to think of that.

i am assuming i will lose some buttering ability with the adjustment?

thanks!
