Default Union Flite M/L or L/XL (HELP!!!)

Hi, i bought the union flite M/L binding for my size 10.5 boots. They hang off 1.5 inches on the back and only .5 inches in the front (because i moved the base plate forward). But pretty even over the board. These bindings seem a bit small, should i go with the XL? Would getting the XL make a big difference? Will they fit on my board, or will i need a wide? My boots fit in the bindings. Just i've been having troubles getting the toe strap to fit right. The best way makes in uneven (more of the strap on one side than the other) and i heard that isnt good. So yeah, what do u guys think? I'm really getting worked up about this.

I have the same problem with the strap showing a lot on the ankle strap. I thought of maybe just buying Large/ Ex.Lrg straps only. But some people reassured me my Med/Large on my 10.5 foot should be fine with the shrinkage tech I got in the boot. I know how you feel we are at that awkward in between size.

Have you pulled your heelcup out to 2 (furthest setting) yet?

Yeah, that's exactly it. Both M/L and L/XL fit my boot size. It sucks. No i haven't, i thought it would just make it worse because i already have most of the boot overhang on the back. What worries me is i have 3/4 of an inch of space on each side (back and front), where my binding sits on my board. Will that give me less control over my board? My old bindings covered all that surface without going over the edge.

i put my ankle strap on the furthest setting and it fits good. just the toe strap fits awkward.

I own a pair of the L/XL Flites and I have a size 13 boot. My boot is a tight fit in the bindings. I think the Flites run on the smaller end of the scale. You would probably do fine with the L/XL.

Oh nice. How do u like them? I haven't gotten a chance to try mine out yet. If they're too small, i think i'll go with the XL.

When I first got them, I absolutely loved them. Now, I still like them, but I need a better everyday binding. They started out as a semi soft binding, and now they're a very soft binding. I've ridden for 2 full seasons now though, so I feel like that's expected. I've also ridden them pretty hard, so that comes into play too. That being said, they'll still work great for a park binding, which is exactly what I'll use them for.

If I had to pick something to complain about on them, it would be the the ratchets first and toe strap second. The ratchets were buttery smooth until about halfway through the second season. Now, they get stuck a lot when trying to release them. The toe strap started out good, but actually got worse as it go used. It started out always staying snug, but now it slips off my toe occasionally. In the end, for $130 brand new, I feel like they've been a good value overall.
