Flow bindings - rotating highback vs adjusting "support panel" left/right?

Hey guys,

so I was trying to rotate the highbacks on my 2013 M9's, but it was a PITA as the highback keeps trying to snap back into the original position after a day's worth of runs.

I went on Flow's website to see if I was doing it wrong, but I wasn't. However I stumbled upon another method to adjust the highbacks - apparently you can move the upper part of the highback left or right (see 2:05 to 2:30 of this video: FLOW Snowboarding | Video ).

What is the point of that (Flow calls it a "support panel adjustment")? Does this work like rotating the highbacks? Moving the plate left/right doesn't seem to change the angle of the force like rotating the highback does. I couldn't find much info on this online.

Anyone care to shed some light on this?

Thanks!

the highback rotation should not snap back if you tighten the screws enough.
