the strike has the better toe strap, the sonic has the better highback mounting system

Wich one do you recommend to a beginner (I am a beginner I know how to do linking turns, but I don't know how to carve I am still practicing carving) my boots are a salomon faction size 11.
Wich one do you recommend to me, both bindings have the same price.

fit might be an issue with the strike, you should be safe in the sonic size L, although you're on the bubble there too

did you go to a local shop to check the boot+binding fit?

Unfortonately it's impossible to me to go to a shop and try the bindings with the boots, I am buying the bindings online shop.
I am more tempted to the raiden strike but I think The k2 has better graphics, But graphic is secondary abd I pretend to use the bindings pushing the toe back (toe cap) that's why I am more tempted to raiden because you say they have better toe strap.
What do you think?
Best regards
