^^ TR11, I had those EXACT bindings (actually, had 'em for sale on here too...lol) and I feel your pain. The guy that bought them off me last week, tried 'em on, and said they fit him mint tho!!?! (they used to pinch my feet too), I think the recoils were made for a really bulky boot, cuz they didnt pinch his feet.
In anycase, i upgraded to the 2008 Burton Cartels. so I can offer ya a fair comparison;
The recoils were stiffer. Recoils are actually a very stiff binding, which is great for learning, but bad for finesse. I've been able to ride my board with a lot more finesse and control with the cartels... Cartels are some of Burtons stiffest bindings, and I find them to be perfect, any more flex and I'd be uncomfy while carving.
The toe cap is AMAZING. I'm so sold on it, that I'll never buy/ride another binding without that feature. (I actually JUST ordered a set of Rome 390's for my 'park' setup, and they have the convertible toe cap, I can't wait to try). They pull more down and back on your toes, so you are completely strapped in (there is no lifting of the boot in the binding at all)... and its so comfortable that you dont feel any pressure points on your toes.
