Anyone use toe caps?

I just recently bought salomon bindings that are the toe strap but can be used as the toe cap as well and I was wondering if anyone has a preference over the other?

I love toe caps/ straps its like the strap isnt there, but still has the hold I want. Normal over the toe straps have always caused pressure points in my boots.

I tried mine both ways and prefer to use it as a cap, seems much more comfortable.

This season is the first time I used the toe caps. OMG....soo soo much more comfy that my old Burton C14s. No pinching, no toe numbness from over ratcheting. I love em on my Targas.

I'm pretty sure it's been stated in here somewhere, but toecaps are definitely the way to go.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
