LL Stomper: Seat Position?

Just bought a LL Stomper 90 and am curious where most people who are paddling it have the seat set: centered, all the way forward, or all the way back.
I'm 198lbs, ~6'3", size 12 feet, yet it seems like it is paddling the most "balanced" with the seat jacked as far forward as I can possibly push it. This is with 'just' a breakdown paddle, pin kit, throwbag, small first aid kit, on a couple of easy shakedown trips; no overnight gear, etc. Am assuming it is gonna be like my Nomad 8.5 was: a little tail-heavy and needing me to be sure to stay well forward when it's loaded.
Be interesting to hear what folks have to say. Thanks.

So many rivers, so little time..........

I am the same size as you and have the seat in my stomper just forward of center. This balances out pretty nicely with a breakdown and first aid/pin kit. Also I would recommend cutting the heel hole in the front pillar, this will give you plenty more room to adjust with.

I'm a bit smaller than you. Have had a Stomper 90 for the past year and have the seat all the way forward. The way I look at it, You are never going to sink that huge bow. Also seems to have no negative effects on tracking, turning, etc. I think all the way forward is the way to go.
