Default Burton Strap durability

I now had the second toe strap break on my 1 year old Prophecy. It was the part with holes both times.

Has anyone had problems with the ankle strap breaking? (That would really suck.)

Yep... beginning of this season... on my Cartels, an ankle strap broke, then on the next run, the top strap.

but... these Cartels were a few years old

move the straps out of the way with your hands before stepping into the binding.
make this a habit and it's very unlikely that you'll ever break another ever again.

I do that - I'm one of those guys who sit down to strap in. I also keep straps closed when transporting the board to minimize bending them the other way.

I also do this habitually with my capstrap when I'm finished with a run and before I get back in the lift line. It might be a bit of extra wear on the ladders but I haven't noticed it and it seems to me to be better than letting the capstrap flop around while skating and getting on/off lift, potentially having it get sliced up by my edges, etc.

I love Burton straps.

I have some 2012 Prophecys and have had no strap breaking issues and have put around 80 days on them. Some fray marks, but no breakage.

I'm happy with the ladders, they have minimal wear. The plastic ratchet wheel seems to be working quite well in that regard, doesn't do damage if it slips.

Oh I should've specified that this practice has not created any noticeable additional wear on the ladders, but I just assumed it would over time. My 2009's are just fine.

On a positive note, I went to a local store (where I hadn't bought the binding) and got a replacement strap for free, no questions asked (I was prepared to pay, since I needed a quick replacement).
