they can go over your toe or on top, its actually one of the most liked designs they stretch over really nicely

Good call on avoiding overprice Burton. I'm not sold on Flux though...

I'll probably just wait until the formulas go on sale. Too bad Sierra snowboard doesn't carry them, anybody know where to get them cheap besides the-house?

Rome binders have ultra cushy straps so you can put them over your toe or wherever you like. They are designed for that, so they will probably work well. I suppose you could do that with any binding as long as the toe strap is cushy enough.

In my experience, just because a toe strap is super cushy doesn't mean you can rock it as a cap. The Rome 390 webbed toe strap is actually engineered to fit as a toe strap or cap strap. Some bindings toe straps that are advertised as "universal" still suck e.g. 08 K2 Formula.
