Have a new super puma inflated in the basement. What is the best placement for footcups?

I suggest you have a seat and decide where you might like it based on where your foot is. usually you will have a slight outward angle.

What is the best placement for six foot cups? What about the air valve in the front being in the way for front placement?

I run the super puma as r2 to r7. Never installed the 2 foot cups I did intend on installing. IF you are running the 3 thwart setup, you really only need footcups in the front bay. In that case, 2 should be good. Have a seat in the bay and see where you will want your feet. Better yet, take it for a spin down the river and sit in the spot. Trace your foot with sharpie and you'll know exactly where you want it. As for the other bays, I move the thwarts forward and back depending on what we are doing. If running westwater with a cooler frame, the middle thwart moves forward a couple ropes. If running r2, the front thwart moves back a few ropes. With foot cups, your more locked in on thwart placement and since the thwarts move, you can adjust them to put your feet under. The boat is symmetrical, so run it backwards with the valve in the stern.

I'm adding a pair in the front of my 13.0 Trib, and one or two in the extreme stern.

With no rear foot cups, do you stern paddlers/guides prefer to stretch forward and stick a toe under the rear thwart?

Those boats are so narrow you can easily cram a foot on each side between the floor and the side of the tube by the rope lacing (if you sitting in the back as a guide).
