I agree with this. It's the only thing I didn't like but there's a modification that will fix the issue. Take the back rest out to a vehicle with a trailer hitch receiver. Stick the end of the seat rod into the receiver all the way to where it curves up. Now push down hard onto the seat back, which puts the rod in a bind right at the curve. Push until you feel it bend a little, and release. Put it back on your throne and see if it's better. Repeat if necessary until you get it the way you want it. I did this to three RnS backrests and they're just perfect now. Disclaimer: The above advice is not recommended or condoned by anyone including me. If you damage your seat, backrest, car, truck, hitch, home, anything else, or injure yourself or anyone else or animals including pets, then I am not responsible.I have a back rest. If I'm using the throne at the computer, I'll use it, but not playing. I have it all the way back and the back still makes me feel like it'd dumping me forward. Only gripe I have about it.
