Okay, so what is the incompatibility?

Plate diameter?
Thickness?
Number of teeth?
Size or shape of teeth?

What, exactly?

Up to now, I was under the misapprehension that plates/discs were standardized amongst bindings, including Burton's. But I guess I must be wrong on that.

I suspect an enterprising junior mechanical engineer could drill out the original plate from any old binding to fit the two ICS bolt/nut things, and the whole thing would work great anyway.

Does anyone know better on that score?

your question doesn't even make sense. LOOK at an est binding, it doesn't have a disc, the bolts attach on the outside. even with disc bindings there is no standard, they might be different diameteres, thicknesses, they might recess the holes for the heads of the screw differently, etc

est binders use DIFFERENT hardware as well

and lastly, there is no such thing as an ICS "adapter plate". they are just called DISCS. when you put a 4X4 disc into a burton binsing so you can use it on a 4X4 board you don't call it a 3D adapter plate, its just a disc

as for 2010, drake, flux, forum are making discs that work with ICS. Ride was going to but bailed, not sure about Union at this point. Rome isn't. Nitro isn't.

Fair enough. I didn't write that part, it was from the previous post.

I think the poster was saying that a Burton disc won't fit Romes. And the concept that Discs are not universally interchangeable is still relevant. If they are not, what are the specifics of how they are incompatible?

Never said there was. But your average set of bindings from a non-Burton vendor come with discs, and the same method used to attach the Burton disks that come with an ICS board could be used to attach modified non-Burton discs.

You have not said you know different, but I'm open to hearing about a problem if you know of one.
