you might want to wait until next year for some formulas (or not)... big changes

i'll put it this way: FORMULA GOES FREESTYLE, new softer highback, new softer straps, no traditional FLAD, no more loose screws for the highback, it's almost completely different, still uses the same alumicrap ratchets as always

also, Auto series is getting LABIA LIPS (the toe strap is going to be super low-profile)

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

For someone who is looking to buy now, this is a sick deal on the current 2010 model if you fit the Mediums. Brand new no box.

I'm on my 4th pair of these 3 with the old metal heel cups and plastic bases 1 with the unibody. The unibody is actually stiffer than the 2 piece design and reduces the weight a bit more.

Take the heel ladder give it one or two turns to the left and it'll loosen it up for you it's all part of the design. As far as the highback screws every now and then you get one that the machine wrenched in too tight WD 40 it then rotate to where you need.

That's the info. I was looking for. Sounds like the new design is only for the better...of course with the total redesign for 2011, wonder how that will pan out.
