Technically, wherever it's comfortable for you, but most people do it on the rubber part. I'm guessing the logic is that the rubber part is a more defined contour and chances are that you won't have to twist the ankle as much to get that flat part. Plus, I'd assume it would be pretty hard to catch it close to the ankle. Finally, I think in the case one sets from clipper, the further the bag is away from the ankle and closer to the edge of the shoe, the more torque the bag will experience and thus the higher it will set.

Half and half

half rubber, half mesh

right where the shoe begins to curve up

Smack dab in the middle of the mesh. At least that's where I aim for.

I personally think it can vary depending on how you have modified your lavers and how flexable your ancle is. If you have decided to rmove the one of the layers of cavase mesh on the inside or out i find it is alot nicer further into the mesh then the rubber insole.

Simply said, you land it on the side of your foot. Wherever you make it land from that point on is up to you. close to the toe, the heel, high, low, wherever...
