Burton Cartels 2012 restricted vs normal

Hey lads,

I'm planning to buy the 2012 Burton Cartels, but looking for some experiences with the phat asymmetrical anklestrap. Since prices seem to be exactly the same I was wondering how people have experienced the restricted version. They look nice and comfy, but would they restrict your movement significantly? Or is it a no-brainer and should I go for the Restricted version without a doubt?

Background:
Intermediate rider, mainly all-mountain riding, bit of jumping etc. NS proto CT is on its way. 5'7' and 130 lbs.

Cheers

I LOVE the asym strap... find them much more comfortable than the regular cartel straps... which actually gave my flat feet pain after a an hour.
