OK, so duals are not for me, but I have no problem using duals with just a single wire; I usually cannot use duals 'cause my stance setup does not allow, and just go with the tall wires.
I am in need of some heel lifters for my furberg build, and am wondering if there is anything really great out there... Normally I use G3 with just the tall wires.

single tall wires have always worked fine for me. duals seem like a pain. YMMV

Chris:

Agreed, single tall wires are fine for me. My question really is, is there a different heel lifter (than Voile or G3) to try out? It appears with the growth of the AT market and shrinking of the tele market, heel lifters as a separate product are getting harder to find, and I am just trying to see if there is any "superior" product out there.

The old tele Rainey Superloop heel risers, called Upheels iirc, are totally indestructible since they used an arch of wire for support. Someone needs to bring that design back. I bet some enterprising dude with a cnc machine could crank out a popular aftermarket system using aluminum. Spark?
