^^^ I agree. Plus you want to keep in mind the set back on these types of boards. My Summit is almost a foot back off of center. So if I mount the bindings all the way back, I am practically standing on the tail. On deep days it's a hell of a lot of fun, but in generally I ride with my bindings two inserts back from the front most setting. Plenty of float in powder and better control on the firmer stuff.

As I said, I ended up with a Prior Khyber. Had to get the first one replaced as the holes in the touring brackets had a burr on them, making it impossible to get the pins through.


I'm confused. Why was the whole board replaced when the issue was only with the touring brackets? Seems like all you needed was new brackets.

Congrats either way! Good looking ride. Stance looks about perfect too. Being in the backseat is good for powder but not for catching air. I like to try and find the sweet spot on my splits where the tip stays up but I'm not so far back that I can't get air.

I assume the Norwegian importer doesnt have the brackets in stock since he asked me to ship it back for a replacement. :D He doesnt carry spare parts as far as I know. Just basically sells the splits.

Thanks! I know what youre saying. I think where I got the stance is just about right, but Ill figure it out for sure after Ive tried it.
