rome bindings

How are the boss 390 highback foward lean angle? i wear size 11 boots and it seems that no matter how foward i adjust it, the highback doesnt fully come in contact with the back off my boots.

Seems pretty good to me. They have a on-the-fly adjuster, which spins and allows you to push down a bar on the highback which increases the forward lean.

You need a phillips screw driver. Check the owners manual.

its a hex key, and i got it all the way down but there is still alot of room between the highback and the back of my boots. and i think this is affecting my heel response.

Lol...he's just messing with you. Is the heel of your boot all the way back in the heelcup? Have you tried taking off the entire highback and moving it forward?

Are your boots flush with the highback near the heel loop?
Your boots might be too wide.
