No idea wtf that even means haha, but just saying, you never know who you're talking to behind a computer screen.
You don't know my industry background, who am I, or anything.

But I'll take your advice Gramps. In the field? SBF slang for small mammal in butthole?

Badass alert.

To shredlife's credit after following me into another thread, he finally contributed something, so that's cool.

This is how I like to do it.

Center the boot and the gas pedal, obviously
and I adjust the ankle strap until there are about three fingers of teeth.

I adjust the toe strap until there are around 4.

Alka, keeps it more simple and rides it down to nothing.

It's like hockey skates, some play tongues in (like me) others go tongues out.

Nivek what are your settings? How do you want your boot to fit?

Size of the boot and size of the binding please.
I have equal toe and heel overhang on that. It's a 9 in a M/L. The strap is centered on the boot.

Hell if you want I'll adjust the whole thing all the way forward tomorrow so there is more ladder and take another pic. The strap will still stick out that far off the end of the boot.

Here's the other side.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Hmmm... It's looking to me like you may be able to size down on that binding. There should be more teeth showing on the ladder strap, and you're apparently on one of the first holes on the other side...

Still, we all get it: You don't like the Union toe strap. I still fail to see how a couple of peoples' opinions justify the weighty bombastic and/or hyperbolic bullshit that has been spewed in this and other threads?

Why not share your experiences with the stuff that has worked and not worked for you and your friends rather than make a bunch of emotional claims about a piece of gear's qualitative merit or supposed objective value? The OP would get a BUNCH more value from that don't you think?
