Also as Leo said, moving the toe ladders into the rear adjustment slot on the baseplate helps a lot in terms of slippage and sizing. A lot of us rock L/XL bindings in anywhere from size 8.5 to 9.5 boots, which are on the smaller end of the sizing charts for the L/XLs. We just minimize everything - the heel hoop sizing, strap lengths, as well as using that second strap pivot option that is set back a little. Pretty much everyone wears them like a toe cap, if that helps, too. Makes a massive difference in terms of how snug it will fit.
Rome, do you have sizing suggestions for a pair of 9 Kaijus?

Since you're in the middle of the size range it'll be up to you based on a couple things.

Do you want to have a bit of a smaller footprint, save a little weight, and max out your size settings? Go with a S/M.

Do you want a bit of a taller highback, a little extra room in case your boots are a bit wider or bulkier than normal, and minimize your size settings? Go with the L/XL.

I got the '12 model. Is it possible to buy the '13 toe straps and upgrade the binding?

We don't charge for parts during the warranty process, so if you ever break a strap or something, we'll hook it up.

However, we can only do that for your current year and model of binding. We unfortunately don't currently offer the option to do any sort of upgrade right now since we just don't have the inventory of extra parts for that purpose.

Just to clarify, if I send it in for warranty, it will be replaced with the '12 parts since it's a '12 model? Also, do you know when/if you will sell spare parts for upgrades? I remember speaking with a Union rep, and that was one of the factors; they upgraded their straps this year as well, and sell spare parts to upgrade. Seems like the only pro they have goin so far with everyone's displeasure towards Union lol

If we have the correct part in terms of year, and potentially things like color, we'll do our best to give you the exact one for a replacement. If we're out of '12 toe caps, we still have the same style toe cap available most likely, even if it is technically from a '13 model. We just can't upgrade you to different one.

It boils down to the fact that selling upgrades would hurt local shops, since you could just buy a 2012 model on a huge discount and pay an extra $20 for some new straps, instead of picking up the '13 model.
