Cool Toe Drag???

*Sorry If this is posted in the wrong section*

So I have a newb question regarding toe drag. After a day of riding I noticed the material on the toe caps of my bindings are a bit chewed up ( brand new bindings). I'm not sure if I fell and dragged them or if it is "toe drag"

So here is my question, If I was getting toe drag would I DEFINITELY notice it? like would it toss my balance off? or could I be getting a little toe drag and just not be noticing it.

I know this may sound like s stupid question, but from my riding, I didn't feel anything but the front of my toe caps are an indication of possible drag.

Thanks

its pretty tough to scrap your toe caps up. they don't come down to the bottom of ur boot so even if you did have toe drag then you shouldn't be able to hit the cap. maybe it scratched on someoen elses board or a tree.

You would definitely notice if you had toe drag, as the board would slip out on your toeside edge as if you were on ice and you will fall flat on your face.

Could be from resting your board on your boot while on the lift. I think I ripped a lace or two because of my edges and bad habit of resting my board on my boot.

I was thinking this was a possibility, but the way this cap sits, If there was drag it seems the part that is scraped up would be the first to hit.

OK, I thought It was possible that I got a little drag/ but not enough to toss me or have me wash out, never experienced toe/heel drag before

No you misunderstood, I'm talking about the toe cap on my binding. not the toe of my boot
