I ride my Burton S-Series which has exactly 4! stance/setback options. As stance is the more important thing and I am on the outer holes, I have only ONE setback option I put the bindings on and ride... The degrees to choose with S-Series system are any so no problem with this. But the truth is I experimented with setback on my solid board. It seems that Burton choosed the right place for the inserts on their S-Series boards because I am very happy about the only possible setback I have and I was surprised and impressed about how good the old splitboard rides. Maybe its about the S-Series system which is great in ride mode and holds the two halves perfectly together.
Overall I like the Burton system much more than Voile, and that is the thing I don't like about the Spark bindings, because the puck-slide and pin system is not my cup of tea and they use although improved but the same system... That's why I would choose Karakoram SL/Prime, the Spark Edison could be a great candidate, it reminds me in some parts of the Burton system, but the better touring mode and heel lock speaks for Karakorams... We will see...
