I'm with Veloscente. As a vacation skier who flies for hours for every ski holiday I guarantee I can pay a premium price and still be time and money ahead if I can cut hours out of the fitting process. Almost all of those hours are time I could be skiing instead of working on the boots and that does not count all the hours tolerating the "almost right" fit before going back to the boot fitter. If you live close and can stop by the store after work it's one thing. If you've paid $$$$ for a family ski trip and the boot fitting will take time away from the skiing and family you'll pay the extra if you can afford it. That's not counting the single most important thing. If the Fischer system is not only faster but more certain - more fool proof - then that's worth a lot too. You can bet if it's successful it will be copied and improved upon so the best is probably yet to come.
