This is going to be a goofy question, but I'm definitely looking for opinions here. I've only been playing for 9 months and haven't really decided whether I want to be a "heel up" or "heel down" player, or both. I seem to have a little more control in "heel down", but I have more power and endurance in "heel up". I currently have my DW 9120M throne pretty close to the kit so I can do heel up more comfortably. I'm always leaning forward a little, and can't imagine my back would ever hit the backrest (if I purchased one). If I move my throne further away from kit to do heel down, then I feel myself leaning back a lot more and can imagine a backrest being helpful. I'm sure it's not as simple as saying backrests are really only for heel down players. Thoughts?
