As described, the "expert/racer" model has the argyle strap - awesome. Installed on Dalbello Kryptons. I trimmed the boot shell where the top buckle is so that the booster strap sits directly on the flex tongue. Works great. Riveted on in the back (not as easy as it sounds). Overall, gives me a bit more control and a bit more comfort. I'd give 4.5 stars if I could, just because Booster Straps aren't exactly as magical as some folks claim, but if you spend some time figuring out how to use them properly (depending on what works for you and your boot), they will almost certainly help. Boots are so rigid and uncomfortable - these straps can make be just what the doctor ordered to take the edge off. The whole key is a bit more control and a bit more comfort - that can make all the difference!
Booster straps are cool and I <3 TOGNAR

I have been using Booster Straps for almost 10 years now, and will never go back. The beauty of the Booster Strap is that you can ski with your boots much looser than with stock straps, if you choose. If all I'm doing is cruising groomers, I rarely buckle any of my buckles. Not only does this keep your feet more comfy, but you develop a much better sense of balance on your skis, as you are no longer relying on the shell for support.
After watching my girlfriend go through the same preventative measures as I used to - putting a band-aid on each shin before each ski day - I bought her a pair for Christmas. We just got back from a quick 4-day trip, and there were no band-aids, and no shin-bang either.
The key to all of this is something I didn't do when I first got mine - they need to go between the tongue and the shell. NOT over top the shell. Do that, and they are worth every penny.

Far superior to stock fast straps the elastic rebound of the cuff makes a good boot a great boot
