Highback rotation (rome 390 boss)?

On my new Rome 390 boss' I can rotate my highback to 0* 4* 8* and 12* (degrees). I have never had this on a binding before and don't really know what difference it makes. though i have not changed it yet because this was my first day riding them today. does it make them less flexy if you change them? it seems like it would put tension on them.
What does it change in you riding?

Set them so theyre parallel with your board. Helps transfer from edge to edge and mobility side to side. BTW I love my 390 boss'. You won't be disappointed.

no, it still flex the same. it's always recommended on bindings to rotate the highback parallel to the board, but like everything else in snowboarding, it's also preference.

^^^This and for me it helped my knees and ankles bend a little more naturally when riding and doing presses, grabs,etc. when you need natural movement
