Toomeyct, I'm glad to hear the RIDE Capo (XL size) bindings fit well. I found a decent deal on a pair and I'll more than likely go with those bindings.
Glad to be of some help. I know how it is to shop for things with feet this big. It's always nice to have more than one option. I think you will like the capos. Very good build quality, very adjustable, and seem to fit very well. I just went ahead and adjusted the frame of the binding for its largest setting and it seemed to work out just right for me.
