Any difference between this year Prophet and last years? Also - is there a shell size difference between the 29.5 and a 30.0? Thanks.

Changes for 2010-2011 model are: bellows increase stiffness about 15% and will be similar in stiffness to the 75 mm Voodoo, forward lean increases to 25+ degrees, and the L-pads in the liner increase in thickness by 1.5 mm for a more snug heel hold. New model can be recognized by gold forward lean mechanism, 09-10 model was silver. The shell breaks at even sizes so 29 and 29.5 are the same shell, 30 jumps up one shell size. Finally, don't forget about the Rottefella rebate offer, between Oct 1, 2010 and Jan 31, 2011, buy an NTN boot and NTN binding, submit the rebate form to Rottefella and receive a $100 gift card.
