Union Contact Pro Rotate Hiback?
 
Rotating these highbacks is a giant pain in the ass with all the fittings and having to remove the strap.

Are you guys who own these even bothering to rotate the highback? Picked up a pair today can't wait to compare them to the Holograms.

They are a bit of a pain in the ass to adjust but I like mine rotated. I ride a +15/-15 stance and it feels more natural to me to have them rotated.

Might be all mental, but I need any advantage I can find. It only takes 10 minutes or so to change them, so not really a deal breaker by any means.

Okay cool. I'm getting lazy with these new bindings now a days. They all used to require fittings and removing straps. The upside is they look well made.

That HB has enough lateral flex to where nobody I know who rides them rotates them. Including all the team dudes.

Cool that's what I was wondering. Just a heads up; there is NO WAY anyone is reading those binding disk increments. I heard this mentioned here before but didn't realize how bad it really is. Come on guys even a 15 year old in his prime can't see anything there. I have the neon greens and forget it.

Obviously the increments are in three but there is no indicator of zero or center, at least if there is it is not visible to the human eye. That's one thing you guys should tweek even if it's just an arrow or something for "zero".

I'll get by obviously but it's a nice expensive binding that shouldn't have anything missing from its lovely design.

Line them up straight and count your notches by increments of 3. A 18 degree stance is 6 clicks. nawmean?

There was an error on the visuals of that disk. One being where is says "front edge". It should say "toe edge". You wouldn't believe how expensive it is to modify tooling, so we ran with it. Haven't received many questions thus far, but it will be changed in the future. Degree marks included.
