Rome Targa highback rotation

Anyone try and set the highback rotation on these bindings? it seems the way they are molded, rotating the highback causes them to not want to fit into the heel cup as smoothly. As is I have just left them stock and it seems like they will be fine, but if I could rotate them a bit that would be great.

Also, I ride -15*,+15*

It seems like they won't fit the heel cup well, but after a run or two with your boot in there, it fits perfect. At least that's the case with my Arsenals, which are the same in regard to highback rotation.

I have been using Ride SPi's for 3 years now and actually have two pairs at this point. I can also rotate the highbacks to work with my stance but have never moved them before and didn't notice any ill effects.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

Fish around in the box, and you'll find a piece of paper that magically unfolds. Inside, you'll see words and even pictures that explain how it's done. Mind-blowing.

My HC2fifty bindings can be rotated, but I've never tried. Doesn't make any difference really, as I'm around +8,-8 I think. If yours won't bolt down, you could heat them with a hair dryer probably.

Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

I have Targas as well and ride 15, -12. I didn't rotate the backs and haven't noticed any issues with my riding.

i ride 12 -12 and have my targa highbacks rotated, they were tight at first, actually still are, but they are suppose to be stiff. they do loosen up over time (very little), but because you are somewhat manipulating the plastic and under that pressure from rotation it will never be as loose to fold them up and down like when they are in the stock position.
