my only other concern is the toe strap.. can you wear it in front or does it only go over the top or the toe?

You don't wear it on the front like previous Burton toe straps. It goes over the top towards the front. See the below link and his comment. Just align the hole so it goes over the leading edge of your boot.

Have last years IPOs in the shop here in Calgary for warranty work. Ladders are all damaged and the ankle straps have holes. As long as they come through on their lifetime warranty, I will be a happy camper. I would think this years models will be more durable. For $330 or whatever they cost, I would hope that I do not get any hassle. I will let you all know.

I think it would be considered a problem on last years models. They became aware of the problem and suggested it would be taken care of this year. Time will tell. I had 10 days on mine and the ladders were stripped easily and the ankle straps had holes in each one. I hope it not going to be a blame the customer type thing. I have been told it could take a month to get them back. I will let you know how good their warranty actually is. The bindings are nice though.

There is a response on AngrySnowboarders site from the owner of NOW posted back in March confirming the ladders will be stronger this year. Cheers.

you actually had to send them the bidnings back?? that to me is sub-par custy service at best... just send me my fucking straps yo.

another note - i'm all for k2 and their bindings, i love how serious they seem to be taking splitboarding and BC... but why the fuck would you come out with a binding and call it the IPO after Now just blew that up last year?? what the fuck. whats next? Salomon Cartels? Burton Proto ct?

lame.

Hey Shred. I think if i just wanted the ladders they could have mailed them. But since the l needed ankle straps and ladders, the shop I purchased them at wanted to send the bindings to their warranty department. Whether that is the shops warranty dept or Now's is up in the air. I just better not get any hassle.
