SUPER PINDA SETUP

while i think i have my first layer down pat @ -1.610, i am wondering and curious to know why my z-offset is way lower than on average MK3S+ owners. 

i read a post by @joantabb https://forum.prusaprinters.org/forum/original-prusa-i3-mk3s-mk3-assembly-and-first-prints-troubleshooting/first-layer-calibration-6/#post-327622 where she says:

"IF you find that Live Z ends up close to -2.000 mm, then your pinda probably needs re adjusting... 
so first of all re adjust Live Z back towards 0.00mm then loosen your pinda probe clamp and move the Pinda UP, one click (One thread) the Pitch of the Pinda thread is 1.0mm per turn so this should reduce the gap between the nozzle and the build plate by one millimetre. 
tighten the Pinda clamp and re run Live 'Z' adjustment". 

This was an AHA moment for me so that i went to do research on idea SUPERPINDA setups, as my much lower z-offset was a result of following "pre-flight" instructions and that is to use a zip tie.  i've tried the 2mm jig ( https://www.prusaprinters.org/prints/50161-simple-super-pinda-adjusting-tool/comments) which i guess is too high as the nozzle would go way down during xyz calibration and a 2 credit card stack which i went with and yielded a -1.610 z-height that's been giving great results so far. 

just wondering and i'd appreciate if if there are other ways to better my setup that you guys can suggest. 

cheers.

i also realized i have a Satin sheet of which not really a lot of MK3s+ owners had initially, would this have mattered i.e. Satin thickness vs. Smooth, Textured Sheets that were initially sold by Prusa?
