Re: NNN vs NNN II bindings

The manufacturers have dropped the 2 from the designation.
NNN-2 is now just NNN
So if you saw a NEW boot marked NNN in the store, it will fit NNN-2
and R3 bindings and NNN automatic step-in type bindings, or any NNN
binding made in the past 14 years or so (except NNN-BC which is
another story).
