I've never had a pair, but from everyone I've talked to, and a lot of people on here, Burton has bindings pretty dialed. The Cartel in particular seems to be a good choice. I have used the same type of toe strap Burton uses, the cap strap. I love that strap. It pulls the boot back in place as well as holds the toe down, and it never causes discomfort since it cups over the entire top/front of the boot.
If I were to buy a new set of bindings right now, it would be the Cartels or the Union Factory.
