Inconclusive.  Too much of an apples and oranges to tell, I guess.  I
rode much better on the Arbor with the Catek bindings than on the Malolo
with the Cartels... but, there are so many differences going on, it
would be unfare to focus on a toe-strap.

I'm going to give the capstraps one more try...  I'll move the
attachment point as far forward as possible, so they don't pull back as
much, and see how loose I can make them without myt boot pulling out of
the strap - maybe that will resolve the jammed toes problem.

I've also started to wonder if the more dampened feel I get with the
Arbor (compared to a Burton board) has something to do with the
bindings, at least in part.  The Cateks have a rubber dampening disc
between the board and binding.  Too bad Catek bindings are insanely
expensive.  :)
