Ride Alpha or Delta Bindings?

I was looking around to get some lightweight park/freestyle bindings and I finally narrow it down to these two models. My question is do you think the Alphas are worth the difference ($80). Are they much lighter than the Delta’s? I ride a green banana so I’m really tempted by the green Deltas

why not go in between and get betas

deltas have a lame toe strap
betas use the same (good) ratchets as the alphas

I'm not too crazy about the betas colors. Good to know about the toe strap and the ratchets, thanks. I’ll go with the alphas or may be look into some other bindings.

Online is my only option. The local sport shops around here don’t have much stuff.
