Do you set the high-back rotation, parallel to the board's edge for splitboard softboot bindings? My stance is a forward stance: +21 degrees front and +15 degrees rear

I tried to go parallel, felt too weird in tour mode though, I do have mine angled slightly

I rotate my front binding highback because that is where most of my heel edge power comes from. I ride 25 deg front and 15 deg rear. My front highback is moved to be somewhat parallel to the board's edge. I feel no negative effect when touring.

This...front and rear are always rotated. 21f,-6r, so rear less so. Also feel no negative effect when touring. I do release the fwd lean for the tour, so that might explain why I don't have any affects when touring.

i didnt want to start a whole new thread, but i just got my afterburners and couldnt be more excited, i noticed to change the rotation there's 3 holes on each side of the highback to change the rotation.... my question, is when i did this i notice it seemed to automatically increase the forward lean angle... maybe i didnt do it correctly, but that doesnt seem right. also wit the rotation i no longer have a "negative" forward lean for touring mode, or may just be miss understanding that concept
