Stance setback 5 inches not 0.5 inches

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I recieved this board and realized the stance setback is noticable. So i went to LIB online and sure enough it says this board has a 5 inch stance setaback, while the Skunk Ape w/o horsepower is a 0.5 inch setback. Backcountry got it wrong on their description. Also, this board is way more noodly than the Skunk Ape, the Skunk Ape is stiffer even though the manufacturer says they are both a 7 on a 10 scale of stiffness. I would say the Horsepower is a 6 and the Skunk Ape C2BTX is a 7 in terms of stiffness. I didnt want to give it a rating because i havent used either of them due to no effing snow in CO! The Skunk Ape feels more like a true twin and the Horsepower version is definetly a directional pow board.

a 5.0 inch set back? so binding inserts are on the tail? That doesn't make any sense....did you get a defect? Backcountry- can you confirm please?
