Default Chewed up ladders on 08/09 Autos?

I've used my Autos for about 20 days, and although I love them, the ankle strap ladders are really chewed up already and I'm not really sure why. I think it might be because I'm overtightening, because there are some creases around my laces.

I don't really know how to not overtighten though, because I feel like I just don't have enough response without them being really tight. How tight do you guys strap in? Maybe I just love it really tight.

Any binder will do this if you over crank them. You don't need them that tight, unless your boots fit super poorly. You should be able to get replacement ladders easy enough.

i dont have those bindings, but i ride with my Ride RXs pretty tight, but my ladders are fine, by tight i mean firm, but not cutting off circulation.

What it is, is you're trying to crank the binding down more than it needs. When a binding gets to a point the ratchet will just slip and rip at the ladders.
