Default Stance width measure...

OK, from disk center to center my stance width is 21 3/4"

I have about a 7/8" setback as the crow flies from tip to disk center.

Here is a pic of my setup, I'll post more in other replies for different views.

From the nose...

The whole tamale...

Weird angle makes the tip look way bigger than it is in relation to the tail. It's a little bigger maybe with a bit more rocker. But, it's nothing like it looks is this pic.

Too much toe... balance the toe and heel overhang. The boot should be centered, not the boot + binding.

Can't, that's all the adjustment there is... The only thing I could do is go back to 0 highback angle to seat the heel a little deeper. What you see is what you get.

Have you moved to another hole on the binding disks?

Turn the disk plates 90 degrees.
