Highback Rotation ;_; ('12 rome 390 boss)

I'm trying to set up my highback rotation so it is aligned with my heel edge but when I try to do it the highback isnt flush with the heelcup, what should I do to stop this from happening, or is it supposted to happen?

There are 6 different settings for the highback rotation on my bindings, can someonebody with the same bindings tell me what settings you have them at for the best rotation?

Hey I'm pretty sure I understand what you're talking about. You want the high backs to be parallel to the line of symmetry of the board. So imagine a line going from the tip to the tail. The highback should follow this. If it isn't lined up then your boot would be leaning more into the side of the highback, not into the center of the back.
This is so that when you lean into them they will give you the quickest response

what he said

you want your backs to align with the black arrow…

The heelcup doesn't have to be flush with the highback. In fact if you add forward lean to most bindings all contact will be made solely on the forward lean adjuster.

Only bindings I've seen recently that have tried to change that are in the new Flux highbacks that completely get rid of the adjuster.

Edit: Also the angle doesn't have to be perfectly parallel with the board. Especially if you're really ducked out in which case it'll feel really awkward. Rotating highbacks is pretty much up to what you feel is comfortable.
