OU812 Thanks for the responses. My stance is 18/-9. I rotated them almost parallel, just a bit off for both. I actually couldn't get the front binding's highback exactly to line up so made the same off angle on the rear highback. Strapped in and felt pretty good, going boarding on Saturday so will now for sure then. I also noticed one of the highback screws that holds it in place on the side wasn't tightened properly from the factory, a bit loose so glad nothing came off last time I rode it.

behi With a duck stance, I find it helpful. It allows better fore-aft weight shifting and improves heel-edge response a little bit.

With a forward stance, I wouldn't rotate them.

24WERD if your bindings angles are higher it is better to rotate them so they don't dig in the calves.

it also allows freedom of the leg without flexing the board esp useful on boxes.

I find the bindings to sit more comfortably on my boot when the highbacks are aligned with the heel edge.
^^I agree with the above 2 posters. I find I have a little more range of motion for tweaking when they are parallel to the edge.

Pretty much feel the same, plus it seems to allows a bit more lateral movement without being uncomfortable.

stunt66 i've been doing this for awhile now but with any binding setting it comes down to personal preference and you never know unless you try.

Highbacks Level with Edge

Necessary? Preference? I haven't done it on mine yet, looking for other peoples opinions on this topic. I've seen mixed opinions on the net searching elsewhere, probably might be the same here. Looking for advice from the veterans here.
