what model year do you have? I'll be surprised if you say 2011 or newer. The gettagrip toe straps are the best in the snowboarding by far.

I've had those pop up on my toes a couple times on my Hylites. Not THE best. I've had amazing success with Flux and Rome for toe straps.

I'm not a Burton guy and I'll still tell you to get the Malavitas. I've checked them out and they seem to be great bindings whereas I owned Forces and know they're not nearly as good.

Vita's..... I rode my Forces for one day and got rid of them.. Toe strap alone drove me nuts. I had Cartels at one point and wanted to go with Vita's this time so I'm trying something different. I am def a fan of Burton bindings.

What boots were you running with your forces? I've never had a problem with the Union toes, even the old ones. I was wearing 32 right up until the Nike program started, and while both are a little bulky, with proper adjustments the toes fit just fine. It also depends on what your looking for, the Force is on the more responsive end of the union line, if that's what you're into great, if not nbd.

I've currently got the Vitas (restric) and the Atlas' and I'm honestly leaning towards using my Atlas' for the majority of the season. They keep it simple, and they work. I've never understood why people dork out on binding tech.

At the time, I was using Salomon F22's.. I'm not the only one that had issues with the toe strap though... Common problem.
