MikeCL I think the toecaps should go down a little bit more right? Is any one way better then the other?

Ah, that makes sense. When set up properly you should generally need more ladder strap (i.e., be less likely to bottom out) when going capstrap style than over the top - simple geometry. However, seeing that your boots were way too far back in the bindings, I can see how that could have been an issue for you initually.

As for the toe strap I might switch up, I think what happen was I bottomed out on the capstrap way, I will have to check again to be sure.

That looks a lot better. Your boots seem pretty bulky for those bindings though - what are the respective sizes?

Also, any particular reason why you are running the toe strap over the top rather than capstrap style?
