Forward lean might prevent the heel from sitting down.

it is sitting down though. if you check the video you'll se me angle the camera behind the heelcup. it's sticking out there, it can't stick out any more than that.

i'll repost the images so no one misses

there is no forward lean, it's on standard settings without any lean. it is a bit bent, and my burton boots are quite straight, which may be what's pushing it up. but they heels are sticking out under the heelcup so it looks fine.

You're new placement looks much better. The key is to try and get the balls and heels of your actual feet as centered as possible between the edges for optimal turning.. If you want to see the ammount of heel and toe drag tip your board on edge with your boots strapped in. You'll be suprised how high your angle will need to be to get drag.

here are some pics bseracka, showing heel an toe drag.





for some reason the left side has more of both heel and toe. might have made small error, i'll fix it some other time. i'm exhausted now ;p

anyway, a guy told me to push the binding back about a centimeter or half a centimeter backwards, so that there's slightly more heel drag. do you agree?
Yep

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.
