I had a pair of Burton Malas that had a regular strap and then updated to a set with the asym strap. You can definitely tell the difference. Better cushioning and support with lateral movements.
"Is it worth the upgrade?" I'd concur with Mrjimyjon. If you already have your '12's paid for then just hold on. If you like the new colorway AND want to try the asym strap AND the new high back then just see what you can sell your '12's for. If the difference in cash it would take to get your '13s wouldn't be too much then go for it!

The other reason for upgrade is the colorways avail for the 2013, but not a priority.
Mainly just curious what is the benefit of the asym style straps over the regular style.

Asym vs reg strap?
Is there a big difference? I recently bought the 2012 Flux DS30's and the only difference between them and the 2013 DS30's are the high back and the ankle strap seems to be an asym style on the 2013. Worth the extra for the new strap, and or highback?
