This was my first weekend using the 2012's and I thought they were great. the toe strap was a little sticky but wasnt to hard I just punch it everytime came right off
. But besides that they were fine fit my boot nice. I also think since the toe strap is a love hate thing some people love them and have no problem and others can't get them to work I think they might be very boot sensitive. I'm using them with 2012 Maysis seems to work fine.
