is there anyone making a universal cant now? i looked but found nothing...under or inside binding, or specific to K2
always used to ride an under-binding cant on the back foot, really would like to again

|NWBoarder||Good to hear that you got them dialed and enjoyed them for the season. I know I love mine.|

So after many days of tweaking, posting, riding, tweaking some more and riding again I've finally dialed in these bad boys. I've got these bindings running perfectly now and I do really like them. They ride well with my TRS and the canting with the stiffer board and bindings make this setup handle like a dream. Took a lot of time and I've got to say thanks to everyone who posted here and gave advice on the set up.
Took the TRS out for a ride day on Saturday and had a great day all day. This board is a damn rocket and these bindings make riding it perfect. Great day on Saturday, again thanks everyone I almost gave up on the bindings.

So I'm happy to say after being out on the hill from 8am to 8pm and using my Skate Banana and my Rome 390 Boss with my Thirty-Two Lashed boots I had a great day out all day. Zero issues, heel side was the strongest it's been ever. Used the 3.5 canted foot beds and they were rock solid all damn day. I want to say thank you to everyone who posted on this thread and helped out setting up these bindings. It took some time and few days out but they felt so natural on the board. Fully happy with them now too. As I was told ended up cutting back my forward lean to two clicks too.
Very nice bindings, I could see myself riding them on either my TRS or my Skate Banana in the future. Again thank you all, all the suggestions really helped figuring this out.

|Cyfer||There's no rotation right now but I see what you're talking about. Planning to fix that sometime today or tomorrow before I ride these again. Hopefully it all works out soon. Not willing to give up yet, but just keeps me thinking Union is the way to go for me. I've never had any issues with either my Contacts or my Forces.|

Cyfer: It looks like you messed up when rotating the highbacks. Not uncommon with Rome, because the rotation is a combination of changing holes on the highback (inner holes) and the baseplate (outer holes). Definitely check the manual sheet on this to get it right.

I'd love to hear the update as to whether this fixes your heel side problem man. I ride 390 boss's as well but never felt like I had any edge problems. Quite frankly I have more control in each foot after switching to these from 09' cartels(the most leaned forward binding I've ever seen). Had never thought of the effect moving the foot bed would have but it definitely makes sense. Looks like pressure was being put too far inside the edge of the board before.
As for the forward lean, dont be discouraged by the ammount of clicks bro. Took me three just to get the highback close to touching the back of my boot. I'd say it'd take five to get to what my cartels sit at with no "clicks". One of the things I love about switching to a true 0 degree lean though is the difference in feel you get under foot when transitioning between edges. I was so used to using mostly legs to get on my heels with the cartels. These took some getting used to but have pleasantly surprised me with a new style of riding. A skater feel is what i'd describe it as.

You should either move both back one hole or just the one so the highbacks are inline with the edge of your board.
Move the right side of your left bindings highback back one hole.
That's also why your forward lean had to be set so far forward
Once you put the highback where it's supposed to go, you'll have to reset the forward lean .
Now you should be ready to rock

|Extremo||You shouldn't have your highbacks in the front holes. They need to be back against the heel loop. You're probably losing all of your heelside leverage because clearly your boot is too far forward in the binding and over the board.|
