I know man they are just about 7 years old at this point ... Thats why I posted in the Boots section so I can get some suggestions on what boots to pick up when everything goes on "end of season" sale. I have a feeling my skills will jump considerably after I have gear that not almost a decade old!!!! The boots are the last thing to go thankfully!!

I think the fact that they are so old are attributing to the fact that I can't quite get them centered correctly.

As far as your cap strap question... I own Union Atlases with similar straps and it really depends on your boot. With my Burton boot into had better luck centering it over my toe, so really it was more to the side . With my Salomon boot, I centered it over the boot itself. However, I still found it slipping off more than occasionally, which prompted me to get the Burton Gettagrips.

I heard the new SL line had stickier cap straps, so I hope that solved that problem.
Yeah this is my first experience with the "toe" strap style so was just making sure I wasn't missing anything.
