NO JOKE MAN! I just bought these DK's for this season...I did notice the ridges on the binding and found that to be the culprit. So other than that, no other fix really? No issues with ratcheting too tight or anything? Kinda sucks...I just didn't know if it was something I was doing...Maybe that is a flaw burton needs to know about.
Use that shit the guy told me about in the thread. Boots good as new. I ride Now IPO's now unless I am on my powder board, so I expect a little less wear.
