hiback adjustment?

ok so im not really a noob anymore but in 3 years of riding ive never adjusted the hibacks on the 3 sets of bindings ive had (exept my flows) and i was wondering what advantages there are to having the hibacks at a higher lower angle, or having them rotated to be parallel with your edges. thanks for any advice/help

rotate to parallel with the edge of your board helps transfer more power to the heel edge.

Adjusting the forward lean helps with this, more power and response but you don't want too much forward lean or you'll burn up your quads.

Less forward lean is great for park riding, more is better for powder/freeride. You will feel the difference with the highback rotation during grabs and what not but if your highbacks are real soft flites youll find it to be way too unstable on landings.
