At 27.2, definitely avoid setback especially for alloy, they are prone to bend especially cheaper ones if you ride over poor quality roads.

Even a very slightly bent seatpost even if unnoticeable for many years can be troublesome as they can get stuck in the frame. Most stuck seat posts are due to very slightly bent seat post or slightly bent frame / seat tube.

Personally, I'd love to have a two-bolt chromoly (or high tensile) steel seat post but I never see any of these anymore
