Yeah, I am getting great info from everyone. Starting to see that there is an overlap venn diagram space. And folks have different experience.The thing with boot overhang is the same as with pretty much everything; it depends...😅
and in soft snow I occasionally booted out when the board sank in too much, that's why I generally looked for boards with a WW of at least 255mm.
So you just have to ask yourself how intense you want to ride / carve, if you just want to ride "casually" on groomers, even a size 11 would be fine on a 250 WW 99% of the time.
You also have to check if you are able to center your boot properly over the board - which can be difficult with L bindings and a smaller boot.
but I'm pretty sure it was simply because the bindings were bigger and therefore there was just more baseplatematerial
I usually ride mid-Atlantic (we exist). So no deep stuff and not much more than groom space unless you go to the northeast. I go out west once or twice a year. I've been thinking maybe, if it becomes a thing, I would invest in a more powder oriented board. Which would be wider anyways!
You're right. Funny think is on the 10 boots and L bindings, I tried to center the boot before sending those pics. The heelcup was in the outer 3rd position and look fine. Which surprise me, cause 10/10.5 should be the smallest for L bindings. However, I didn't really check too much into that.
Good point. I am moving up to more stiffer equipment. I will try all boot/binding combination with my board. Try to flex around my carpet and see how the board feels. Also, lean tow/heel to see about overhang.
