Burton Bindings - Adjustments

I've been using Burton bindings for years (hold your Burton sucks comments! Haha) and I typically will adjust the highjacks, forward lean, and strap length to fit my boots, stance, and riding style. One thing I've never toyed with was the options for the ankle strap. Burton bindings ship with the ankle strap in the middle of three possible mounting points and I've always left it that way. I'm assuming that using the lower mounting point results in more flex in the ankle and using the upper mounting point results in less flex.

Anyone have any experience/anecdotes with using these alternative mounting points?
Do you see/experience a significant difference between the three?

I spend most of my time riding the groomed slopes. I take the occasional lap in the park with about half the time in the park spent hitting small/medium jumps and "easier" rails/boxes. When on vacation to large resorts on the west coast, this is the same but toss in tree runs and powder riding as much as possible.

Thanks,

MeanJoe

I always put it on the "back/top" setting for 2 reasons... to try and get my straps shorter and to hopefully minutely increase some support which is not noticeable at all.

I'm trying to change mine, but I cant get the strap to move... I unscrewed it but it won't budge, it seems like somethings holding it there. Any help?

Take out the part that the screw threads into maybe? Look on the inside of the bindings, push the piece that the screw threads into from the outside of the binding with a small screwdriver. Done.
