Don't trust a plumb lines dropped by yourself, there is way too much room for error.

That being said you also need to make sure that you're on a saddle that works for your body (not just comfort). When I set up on a saddle that's too wide, even by mms, a plumb line will always say I'm too far forward because I'm forward of the sit point on the saddle. Sliding the saddle back wont help this either because I'm just sliding on it.

Backing out a bit, KNOPS is great for finding "neutral" but I don't use it as fit dogma. Once you realize that all the fit points directly influence and are related to each other, then you can get great fits that disregard KNOPS. I very rarely set up folks at KNOPS.
