What bindings?
 
Ok so I need to get bindings since all my stuff was just stolen. Anyways, I was thinking about the rome 390's and burton p1's. I really like the 390's but I am now noticing that it looks like the strap doesn't go over your toe.

What is the advantage of having a strap that goes over the toe as apposed to just over the top of the foot?

None that I've noticed. I've used a binding that had a cup on the front and it didn't feel any different to me personally. The 390's are great bindings, though. Really soft if you ride the park a lot.

The exclusive Rome SDS Conformist.2 toe strap customizes to your boot, allowing you to choose over-the-toe, or over-the-top. Both straps are completely tool-free.

Found that on google. Defiantly going with those if that is true. I preferred the over the toe, I demoed my friends old p1s (got stolen with my board) and they had the over the toe. I liked them so much better then my over the toe bindings. But, those bindings were only like 25$, and not very good. They were like 70% off end of the year thing. With these I'll be able to test it both ways with the same binding.

The rome 390's have the best toe strap. It can go on top or over the toe. It has a webbing design that conforms to anything.

Flow has advantages
 
I ride nothing but Flow. I'd rather spend my time riding than sitting in the snow jacking around with bindings through thick gloves.

mo flow
 
I've got an older FRX and some 11s. All work well. With the new ones, spend some time adjusting them before you get to the mountain. Then, just click and ride. You probably will need one more adjustment sometime during the day.

I love mine and recommend them to everyone from student to my teachers.

When you're on a lift that you know, you can clip in the back foot while going up. Then, you ride off the lift past the snow sitters. Sweet!

It's true. I ride Rome Targa and they are the big brother of the 390s. Same toe strap, goes over the toe or over the top.
