Don't know if these two concerns were warranted.
Haven't had any issues with my ratchets. My right toe strap some of the webbing has come undone but that's after 1.5 seasons of use and it hasn't affected performance yet. I did have some problems with the hardware on several pair of 2013 Ride bindings that I rode this year though, not staying fastened to the board. Not a good problem to have. I haven't heard anyone else mention it really so hopefully it was just drunk/hungover/stoned reps not doing their job or chalk it up to pre-production maybe.
