stimyg I was just measuring front and back, and seeing what the difference was. So in other words, my .625" setback (which I now have looked up online) I was calling 1.5", i.e. the difference between the measurement to the nose and tail. So that's what I was doing.

But I'm still not sure if I should set it back further. Think I'll move it a bit and see how it goes/

I thought you had the KT-22 (1" setback)?

What is it with people in this thread not knowing the setbacks on their boards?

Wrong, that board is perfectly fine in size for his weight and riding.

Also wrong on the setback for the Heritage.

stimyg Also, while I'm at it - I change my stance according to what kind of riding I'm doing. So at times my stance width can change by 1-1.5". And yesterday I was thinking I should widen out the stance I'd had set on there a bit.

With that in mind - is it more the front leg or the back leg that you want to move back, in powder? Or are they equally important? (I know the standard is just to take your usual stance and move it back, just curious which has more influence on the floatability.)

Thanks.

stimyg Sorry I'm not sure what the default setback is - don't have the board in front of me - but currently I have it set to the default. So the question is, should I go farther?

Just from riding yesterday I felt like it could go back a bit - just don't know what the standard is for this kind of thing, what most people do, on average.

I know there's no one answer to this. But just throw out some suggestions would be great.

Thanks!
My Heritage is setback about the same and I've had no problems in knee deep powder. Remember, powder is slow so steeper is better and don't slow down! That board is a little big for you (IMO, I ride a 158W heritage and I'm 200lb naked) you should be fine.
