Rome 390 high back adjustment

do you guys keep the angles at zero? I will probably start riding them at 15 and -2 to get a feel before making any adjustments. Are you suppose to adjust the highback to match your stance as much as possible? I am a noob with highback adjustability and trying to get some insight to fully utilize the bindings. thanks in advance for any help you guys offer

Just got my 390's in the last few months. I lined up the highbacks to the edge of the board, as best I could. The energy transfer on heelside feels great. Hard to explain, but I enjoy it.

Rotating the highback is really the rider's preference. I've ridden with the highbacks rotated so they aligned to the edges of the board and without the rotation and I can't say there was much of a difference. I ride with my bindings set at 15/-15.

I have mine at 0, with a couple notches of lean. I've tried messing with putting them at different angles but 0 seemed fine.

highbacks should be rotated parallel to the heel edge, forward cant should be same angle as the back of your boots
