:sun:purely down to personal choice. If you have them pointing out to sea then you have to sit or stand to the side to see your rod tip/s. If you have them pointing along the beach then you can sit or stand behind them. I may be something to do with wind direction if it's strong because the wind is more likely to blow a rest over if it's broadside on. That's my two pennyworth for what it's worth, someone else may say different.:sun:

When facing south and the tide is running east to west I cast uptide and set the tripod and rod tips to the south east,when the tide turns I move things round to face south west.This way bites are easier to spot.

Down to a mix of personal choice and conditions i would say.
As has been said before, if you want to set them in the direction you have cast then you have to sit beside them to watch for a downward bite. If you set them at say 90 degrees to your cast then sit behind them to watch for a sideways pull.
High or low in the rest and straight in line with the cast or side set to the cast i think is best set by strong winds or tides (to stop rods being pulled off the rest, or the rest being pulled over)
