Toe overhang, Can I get your opinion?

I've been using this set up for a few years and have always felt that these large 2003 Burton Mission bindings and size 12 2002 Moto boots were just too big for this average width Burton Indie 158. Please take a look at these photos showing the overhang of the boots (front and rear) and gas pedal on the bindings. If anyone could give me some feedback on whether or not this setup hinders true carving angles please let me know. My stance is +9/-6 and I do mostly free riding.

Check out these photos.

Thanks, Chris

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

Sorry for using shutter fly (Are you offended or something?), it's the only good way to upload pictures online these days...as for the photo's, there should be 8 of them and some are up close showing the overhang...I don't know what else to tell you other than that I am not concerned about the fitting relationship between boot and binding. I am only interested in what less sarcastic forum members have to say.

Peace.

well shutterfly is acting crazy so i cant see the pics. i currently run 03 (ish) missions with burton freestyle boots on a lib tech 157 and i have NO problems. the missions have a built in gas pedal or something so even tho there is overhang it doesnt affect my riding unless i an seriously laying down. you shoud be fine, especially if youve already been rocking it for a few years.

They are '03 missions, I just replaced the regular straps with cap straps a couple seasons ago...anyone wanna buy some regular straps? (half joking) But also, they have the P1 top strap because they are the special edition mission darks or something.

I got them at Pedigree Ski Shop up here in NY, just found the box and it says '06 on it and that they cost $40, that shop is always pretty overpriced though. I'm sure they still sell them at most board shops. They are definitely worth it though, I got them before I hit up Colorado last year and the feeling is pretty noticeable.

Peace
