You have to be kidding me. Bad ass is the best outfitting hands down. I have 25 liquidlogics in my school fleet and have never had ratchet failure. Some screw failures because they were not tightened but no ratchet failures. Sorry you had that experience. It sounds terrible but everytime I try a different brand of I just end up focused on how unstable and complicated the outfitting is.
I am excited to get a squirrel. I love my Remix 69 so a Squirrel 85 should be a little more stable and forgiving in the rough stuff. With more bow rocker should be easier to turn than the Remix.
