Default how to make Rome 390's more responsive

I am trying to make my 390s a little more responsive. How would I do that.

I was thinking of putting the ankle strap higher up, what would that do, would it make it more responsive??

What else could I do.

Thanks

Im assuming you mean for heelside, in which case more forward lean on your highback.

yeah more forward lean changes it a lot, centering your straps helps a little bit
they're pretty responsive on their own imo

It should give you more toe-side response.

Joking aside, that's true. The Arsenal has their stiffest highback, so it should be the most responsive.

If they are new you should probably trade them in for targas(medium) or arsenals(stiff).
