Julie,

I have been loyal to the air stance for 5 years, the seals and the 3-4 times a year rebuild got old but it worked well, it was a good solid unit, I have now started wearing the Mercury TT pylon from Endolite it is much lighter and easier to maintain I have had it since June with no problems I an using it with a mercury foot, this combination works well and with minimal maintenance should last a long time I had a new leg made with this same components, and am very happy with it.
