that guy is at the IRTC and who did my fitting, I think it is a $75 charge there. That is in Arlighton, TX. I haven't ever seen anyone else take that much time or measurements. The $75 includes getting the PAP rev rate, axis rotation tilt etc and fit.

Check out his tips and coaching videos (on YouTube) some of which appear in forum posts.
Lou is highly talented and respected.
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em

I had this guy do mine and he took his time and I really like the fit. Mo pinel will be doing the same thing in baton rouge when I go there this weekend. No need to get him to do a fit right? https://www.facebook.com/Southern-Bowli ... 543715691/ (that is the thing about Mo pinel being there on the 14th when I get there.
