Great looking ship, Jack!. Thanks for sharing it with us. My pastime is more of a sporting obsession... golf!

In my opinion / Re: Pefect Stride II foot

I was checking out the Bioquest Perfect Stride with my prosthetist the other day. Looks like a great foot, but not perfect for my needs. It's like a Harley Davidson motorcycle, great for straight aways but maybe not so dynamic in the "twisties". I'm most likely going to try the College Park Venture this time around. We considered a Delta Twist adapter, but then there would be too much going on for my needs. So, Venture it is, with regular pylon. I've worn the Reflex VSP, too heavy and "busy" for me, and currently use the Advantage DP for daily use at work and golfing. Ages ago, 15 years ago,  I had a Seattle light foot with an Endolite ankle, but shearing the ankle bolt a few times got me onto other feet. For me, liner and socket compatibility are the most important factors. I'm having custom cast TEC liners made this time around as I have a very short, boney, pointed right stump which, due to grafted skin, can break down easier than my left residual limb. I feel that you can have a $10,000.00 foot and it's worth squat if you can't wear it due to a poor fitting socket. The gentleman who started this thread needs to stop SHOUTING in his posts and realize that we're all adults here. Don't feel offended if people don't respond to your posts right away... we have lives too.Cheers. David in Canada. Double Bk amputee. 32 years now.

32 years ago for me! I'm posting to see if my Avatar selection worked. A pic of me taken by my caddy at the Old Course a couple of years ago after teeing off on the 18th hole.
