Need advice - 2017 Mamba foot brace setup

I got my first WW boat last week and I am outfitting it for practice at Meyers this Sunday. I usually paddle a sea kayak, so I am used to having foot pegs and room to spare for gear down at my feet.

With only a 5 y/o youtube vid from Dagger as a guide I tried to adjust the height of the foot cups and place the foam wedges. They feel fine, but look sloppy. I can probably monkey with them for an hour lining them up just right. I don't think the gap around them is acceptable, but maybe it is.



Can someone with a Mamba or Axiom that's got their foot braces done right for comfort and safety glance at the linked pic and offer some guidance? Do I need to add more foam to block the gaps? Is this just way the Dagger foot braces are?

Thanks.

Looking at your picture the foam block needs turned a 1/2” to the left it’s not off by much.

Pro tip.

Set the plastic foot block where you like it, adjust the cups, like you have.

Pull the bulkhead all the way forward and install the foam, then put it back to where it works for your feet.

This is what worked for me in the nomad.

I liked the outfitting

In thes imagages you can see more foot block.

In my opinion there is no gap between foot plate and boat, and the foam fills the foot plate to the outer edges.

Thanks, Bobbuilds.
