Gibbon Slacklines...Lacking?

So Gibbon lines have been THE trickline for, what? 5 years now? Lately, it seems Gibbon line owners have had alot of problems with their lines, including me. I've talked to people who have had their lines fray during first use and even broken ratchets. I can say from personal experience that my jibline webbing sucks, first I noticed small, very small, frays in my line that began to rip bigger as I tensioned my ratchet each use. I just got a surfline about 3 weeks ago and it is already begining to do the same thing. The Tubeline is going to hit markets soon ( 1" gibbon webbing with double 1'' ratchets) so hopefully gibbon has fixed this problem. Don't get me wrong, I love tricklining on my Jib and Surflines, but I don't want to have to replace my line every 4 months.

My question is, is this normal? I've heard of these things happening from numerous people, what about you? Broken ratchet? Frays? Rips?
