^^exactly - the entire heelpiece is now more of a conventional design (really reminds me of marker's heel piece design - not the actual internal design, but the external design). the old pivot turntable (you know, the part on the existing binding that turns turn...duh and is flat table) design has pretty much been thrown out the window by the looks of it.
personally, i think look is just reinventing the wheel. and while it may work out for them in the future, i don't know how well these things will sell in the 05-06 season.
