Shock/torque Foot comparisons ?

Are there any BK Amputee Prosthetists out there that have done a comparison
the Pathfinder, Ceterus, and other dynamic response feet combined with a
shock torque pylon?

With the right components, a BK could have all the presumed benefits of
shock-torque and dynamic response from a variety of combinations.

I would like to hear from BK Prosthetists who have tried different
combinations on themselves or a cooperative pt. By this time, I know that
it is hard to make these comparisons fairly because of the variety of factors
such as which keel and bumpers were used and subsequent alignment.
However, I would be interested in people’s subjective comparisons.

Of course, I would also like to hear from these same prosthetist/amputees or
widely experienced amputees, about their preference for multiaxial vs. shock
torque dynamic response feet.
