Axis Plus... got that Poron stuff to absorb shock too, which is magic.

I can't tight the NTT's enough. I keep feeling them big. I think I did the right configuration on the different adjustments. Not much place to make a mistake there.
The feeling on the Apex is much better for me. I feel the feet more wrapped and snug, but they get free when they have to.

Both bindings come in one-size-fits-all, so I don't have the wrong size.

I should have clarified my post, I have narrow feet but am a size uk 10/11 (us 11/12) depending on the shoe brand. you are narrow and 3 sizes smaller than me.

As for one size fits all I don't think this describes the NTT's fairly, usually one-size-fits-all t-shirts are sloppy on most people :) to be fair to the NTT's they have multiple tracks to place the straps into (wide/narrow). The tracks also allow the straps to be placed closer to heal or toes. They have dual straps so you can tighten the tow side down more/less relative to the heal side.
Yes. NTT are awesome binding and I keep using them. I just get a better feeling with the Apex.
As for the one-size-fits-all, what I meant is that they don't come in different sizes as some Cab Bindings do.

DO NOT USE F1- they have a high arch profile and it cuts in to your foot after a while.
I tried the NTT on a friends boards...they are super comfy

I am very picky, tried several types and loved the LF Luxury for quite a while. Now i have the Shinn pads and straps (2013) and they are the best yet. The 2015 Sneaker Xs look even better.
