|francium||On a piste performance course a few years ago we were told by the instructor that you get more control from straps rather than caps, however I have the same problem with union straps that they have a tendency to slip down the front of your boot, I am a fan of my ride toe straps the rubber webbing sits pretty much on the end of you boot and doesn't go anywhere.|

|Nein11||I can relate with the OP as I have finally begun riding toecap last year. You definitely had a level of fine control at slower speeds with toe strap. To get anything similar with cap you have to use different muscles in your feet and its not as precise....BUT.....the comfort is well worth the loss of a little fine control to me.|

Another vote here for toe caps as superior to toe straps.
I tried Flow bindings a few years ago, before they developed their hybrid strap option. While I was okay with the binding, I didn't like not having a strap cradling the toe box of my boot. It just feels more locked in with a toe cap imo.
I'm curious to try the new Flows with the hybrid strap and the supposedly improved toe cap.

|td.1000||old-school bindings will still pull your foot down even if the strap is at the wrong place. and I wasn't talking about being centered on the board, I was talking about being centered on the binding i.e. adjusting your heelcup accordingly. but obviously if stuff isn't fitted it won't work as it should.|
