I found the opposite for me when I finally moved from the power efficient ball over spindle to spindle just behind ball, it let me "balance" much better on the pedals, which translated to much more confidence and ability t move/rotate my foot in the tech terrain, whereas with spindle under ball, I always felt pitched forward onto my toes and had a few good OTBs in slow tech terrain because of that.
_**"Interesting. Many (most?) people would disagree about a foot forward position not having any disadvantages. Especially when descending, having the arch of your foot over the spindle and dropping your heels gives you more control and a better ability to handle rough sections at speed. The ankle flex you mention does make sense until you're going fast enough or over rough enough terrain that it becomes a liability and leads to pain for some. Are you on a dually or hardtail? Is your terrain rough?"**_
