Equipment experts around? Board setback

Guys,
I have a board that has a 20mm setback on it. That translate to about 3/4"
The board has it listed as having a 20mm setback stamped on it.

Whenever I look at the binding holes, and compare the first/last holes and measure from the front of the board to the holes ,and then from the back of the board to the holes - it comes up to about 2" setback!

I then thought, OK maybe they mean from the absolute curve edge, so I tilted the board on edge to find the absolute minimum contact point, mark it, then measured from those points to the center of the binding , SAME - 2"

2" is more like 50mm!!!!
That's a powder board then.

The board I have it labeled as being an all mountain board, good for everything you can throw at it. Meaning, it doesnt shine at any one thing.


Am I measuring wrong, was this manufactured wrong.....what is the meaning of wrong?

Setback is measured from the middle of the front foot & back foot binding holes. For example, if you mounted your bindings centered you would (for example) have 18" from the center of the front binding plate to the nose and 18" from the rear binding to the tail. If you gave that a 1" setback, or move both bindings 1" back, when you measure from front binding to nose you would have 19" and 17" in the rear to tail.

wow, thanks - I feel stupid now lol

If you move BACK one inch, you will be 2" difference between the two measurements because you took distance away on one side, and added on the other.

Wow - well done sir, thank you for the reply!
