Highback Rotation

Do you guys rotate your highbacks to be aligned with the heelside of your board? Or leave them aligned with the binding?

Mine are left straight. Haven't decided yet if I want to rotate them.

I can't decide either.

The concept of aligning them with the heelside edge does make sense tho, for more precise control and engagement of the heel edge.

The choices the choices!

I've been ducking my stance more this year and I haven't noticed a difference in response - I haven't rotated my highbacks.

I ride 15/-12 and rotated them to 8/-8 so they are slight less than parallel with the edge. It makes for a good balance between the two

Good idea. I might try that and see how it feels.

I rotated mine partially and it does feel better, but no drastic improvement.
