Default Does a deeper heel side cut = more heel drag?

So, I am debating on getting a new Gnu Riders Choice but am concerned about heel side drag from my big ass boots and XL bindings. I have the 2010 Riders choice and currently use 2011 Ride Delta bindings. I feel like when I go hard on the heel side or am trying to traverse steep areas my boots and the back frame of my bindings dig in and fuck me all up. I wear a 13 boot and have my settings so that the heel and toe are equally hung over the edge of the board. The new R.C. has Pickle tech that gives a deeper heel side cut. Will that make my current heel drag worse?

Thanks much!~
