MunkySpunk I've got mine against my boot. Just enough that I can feel the pressure through the boot when I'm strapped in. REALLY helps with initiating heelside as well as keeping proper form during toeside.

nzboardlife i've always had it to my boots, might have to try it parallel to edge sometime

jeri534 Before if I ran a 22" wide stance it was kinda uncomfortable, but now with my highbacks parallel there is less pressure again my legs allowing a much more comfortable stance at 22"

markee I have mine parallel with the heel edge.

i think the more important adjustment that you can really feel if forward lean adjustment, i think it helps way more with heelside turns
Yeah, i tried that once, didnt really need as much pressure to initiate heelside. Also helped keeping my knees bent.

twin89 i have mine aligned with the boot not heel edge, just because my ride rx bindings are way too hard to adjust there.

but i have ridden with them aligned before and i can't really notice that much of a diff. i think the more important adjustment that you can really feel if forward lean adjustment, i think it helps way more with heelside turns

baldy i always thought that it was the general rule of thumb to rotate your highbacks parallel to the length of the board.. i've rode my friends board that didn't have his highbacks rotated and i do notice a difference. when i would shift my weight to my front leg to initiate a heelside turn i felt like i didn't have enough support since i wouldn't have any high back in that direction.

I want to do this, but in the end i go back to what works.

Why would i want to waste a perfectly good day at the mountain with my legs potentially cramping or having to stop for 5-10 minutes to move my bindings around :/

I run my bindings parrallel to the heelside of the board, or atleast as close as they can be by eyeballing it.
