I don't know how I missed your post, sorry. I am seeing a loacl philly fitter on Oct,4. I spoke with him during a kind of a orientation for a 1/2 hour. He will conduct a very similar if not identical evaluation on my feet, ankles, legs and hips. He also has some new tool that will measure rotation when flexing forward.  More to come after the fitting. I got his name from over at Epic and spoke to some of his clients. One is a Dr. I bought my 82's from and this guy swears by him. He skis all over the world (literally) so I take this as a good reference. In speaking with him, Billy Kaplan, I really got a good sense that he already had a good grasp of my skiing and problems. I can't wait!  After the disaster with Kenny Friedman from Gorsuch in Beaver Creek, I am really pissed that I waisted about $300 on "fitting" and foot beds. A total waist of money.  I am goin gto pay the Gorsuch mgr a visit in December and have a calm, but firm talk about the "work" done by Kenny, They already had to put me i brand new boots last seson after Kenny fit me boots too voluminous.
