MojoMan: One of the best threads and reviews I've seen in a year. Nice work!
Also, thanks to Barrettscv for the clear DIY instructions on the Intuition.
I use both the Intuition (several times) and Conformable.
I've enjoyed the Intuitions. They're more forgiving than Conformable and a vast improvement over any stock liner. I'd buy them for any boot.
Conformable, which I'm currently using, is the ultimate in terms of precision and energy transfer. The fit is rock-solid, and it's got to be perfect. The big issue with Conformable, is your fitter. As MojoMan said, it's complicated, precisely-timed process than can only be done by a pro.
But, if it's done right, it's amazing. In 30 years of skiing, I've never felt as much control and confidence. If you wiggle your toe, the ski moves. I've become more adventuresome and technically solid with these liners. I can see why racers use them.
The only downside to Conformable is that your feet are anchored into a ski-position fit. If you hang your feet a lot from a lift with no footrest (Loveland), or walk much in them, the ankle bones push against their "pocket", and you'll feel it. Not a biggie, but it's there.
Intuition is a simpler choice for most people. Unless you crave vise-grip control, Intuition is easier to deal with, in terms of fit, cost and comfort. They also provide an outstanding leap in performance.
Hi, that's pretty much my experience. The Conformables are wonderful but might offer a bit too much precision for some skiers IMO; definately not an optimal liner for causal cruising or a relaxed skiing style. Like you said, if you you move a hair on a toe, something is going to happen.
