There are no major changes for the Scarpa range for the 2006/7 season. The Tornado freerando boots, introduced this year, will once again available in a limited edition (L.E.) model and there are a couple of new touring boots, the Spirit 4 and Spirit both based around the Scarpa Spirit 3 chassis.
Scarpa told me they sold all 1000 Tornado L.E. models made for the current season. This L.E. has a special Booster powerstrap. This locks the cuff, stiffens the boot and provides better ski control. The boot also looks nice.
The Laser also disappears, replaced by the Spirit. This is essentially a Spirit 3 but lacks Dynafit inserts, something the Laser had. It also has not lightweight thermo inner boot and tips the scales at 4200 grams in size 27.

davidof, will you be writing a detailed review of the Spirit 3 in the near future?
What is your take on the overlap between the Tornado & Spirit 4?
Obviously, one has the Dynafit inserts, but is the Tornado still the beefier boot?
