And the 0.5º base/3º side is a classic eastern race bevel, and should work wonders with the Heads. You may need to have them ground flat to get the proper base bevel, as it sounds like your current bevel (likely 1.0º) is too slack for the side to really work.
Your best bet is to find a shop with a good tuning staff, rather than just the staffers who trust the machine to do it all. If there's nobody of that caliber in your area, there are shops that will do proper tunes by mail order. Edgewise
in Stowe, VT, does this, and Graham is a great
ski tech - and they're not the only shop that does tune-by-mail service.
Good luck - though I still give a hearty thumbs-up to the Fischer RC4 Progressor for boilerplate behavior.
