Thumbs down

Hope these pics will give anyone any ideas to what I might be doing wrong in the setup. Current canting is at 3.5 degrees.

Re: Canting and Binding Performance Issues

Problem solved. You need to pull the heel part of the footbed out to the edge of the top sheet. Right now your toe edge is better for you because you have it properly placed, but your heel washes because of the gap between the end of the footbed and the edge of the board. Fix this and you'll stop washing out.

I tend to agree with that. A little difficult to confirm without a picture that shows the heel/footbed with the boot strapped in, but that was my initial guess as well seeing that the back part of the footbed is all the way in/forward.
Incidentally, that is one of the adjustment options for Rome that I was talking about - although not unique to Rome, this ability to adjust the length of the baseplate and the extension of the toe ramp and the heel part of the footbed, all independently, really offers a lot of flexibility (but also takes some getting used to).

Did the adjustment and I can see how it makes more sense now. Kinda stoked to ride this setup now too. I can see how the leverage was off when it came to the heel side.

The boot now fits better on the heel side edge also. Sometimes the fix is so simple and it's good to have other look at it. Thanks all.

Re: Canting and Binding Performance Issues

I'd say it looks better now. I'd also say if you still have an issue with it, move the heel out a little more until it's completely flush. That last picture makes it look like there is still a slight gap.
