I have a VBM Super but am still learning. Mine is set at a tad under 1.1. The 2 hole tip can face almost north / south OR east west depending on where I position the ball jointed wand so Im unsure of the Q on that point.
From my thus far limited experience and comparing to the few decent baristas that have allowed me to look over their shoulders my microfoaming is coming along nicely. The trick Ive found is the machine is so powerful the milk heats fast so youve got to concentrate and find your spot quickly - start with icy cold milk - thats helped me.
Someone with more experience will be able to give you more details... :-/
