Do anyon else have problems with cranking down the ankle straps hard?
Mine are slipping under much lighter load then on my Salomon bindings that are over 4years old, and have original straps and ratches.

Gunnar and I have chatted offline, he's rolling with some Salomon ratchets now. I haven't had any other complaints about the buckles slipping, Gunnar must love them mega tight.

Thanks Will!

I'm using Burton straps so can't speak to the BMs.

The new Bentmetal Dual-axis buckles are amazing! I can cank them down so hard I want to, and more. Now I dont have to stop at the top and tighten my slopy old Malamuts to the edge of risking braking the laces anymore, to get secure heelgrip.
They are, by fare the best ratchets I have ever used!
