Dont be D-bag
That doesn't make sense. Regardless of how you adjust the straps, you don't want any slack in them because the point of straps is to ratchet them down to keep your boots in the baseplate and highback. If you are riding with slack straps, you're doing it wrong.
If you are talking about extra ladder length, no that doesn't matter either because the interface at the ratchet and ladder teeth is what causes the stickiness. They mesh at such an angle that they catch even when releasing. The meshing of this tooth interface has nothing to do with and cannot be affected by the strap set-up.
Again, go watch the video of Johan running the clinic with the straps set up that you recommended. If you actually watch it carefully, you can hear the buckles popping loudly as he tries to release them.
As even more evidence, watch the 2011 clinic @ 2:04 you can clearly see him wrestling with the toe buckle to release on this correctly set-up Asadachi:
You being wrong about this in no way indicates other people are being D-bags.
