Union Forces

I know there is like 20 Union Force threads every day but I had a quick question. I know the 11 had a bad toe strap so the 12 has an upgraded version. My question is how bad were the 11's, I would really like to save some money here since I think bindings for the most part are the biggest money pit in the boot/binding/board combo.

Edit: Also I see you can buy the 12' straps seprate as replacment parts would they fit 11's if some how I found a great deal on the 11's that would make this worth it?

1. The 11 toestraps aren't for everyone, they'll work, but they take a while to dial in. Some prefer them, some don't....I got mine to work, but felt more comfortable with the DLX toestrap.
1a.) BOOTS are the most important thing in your setup. If they cost a lot, but fit great, pay for them, don't fuck around and get some shitty boots, trying to save for a board or bindings. 90% Rider 10% equipment, but shitty boots will ruin your life.

2. (Back to the thing at hand) Yeah, they'll fit 11's no problem. All their toestraps are compatible with all bindings. I have some 12 toe-straps on my 09-10 forces, they're amazing, conform to your boot and will NOT come off. I was skeptical that they'd be better than my DLX straps, but after 3 days they have wrapped around my boot.
