Any opinions on which is better (if either actually is)? I want to replace the ones in my SIDI G4's. Thanks.

I'm using Superfeet and think they are great. I have also used Petersons but the Superfeets work better for me.

Do you use the custom, pricier ones or the ComfortRX economy inserts?

i've used superfeet for years and love 'em. had a pair of the petersen powerbeds and honestly think that the superfeet are better. we sold 'em at the shop and never had a complaint. they really helped the soreness i used to experience in the arch of my foot.
This is good too...coonass

I've never tried Superfeet, and have no complaints w/Peterson's, but Sorbothane absolutely will eliminate any 'hot-spot'....(Sorbothane is absolutely the best shock absorbing material ever!)

I've had real good luck with the Superfeet green capsules. They recommend the gray capsules for cycling but I found they did not offer enough padding. The blue's are recommended for mnt biking. I believe the only difference between the blue and the green, is the greens have more padding in the footbed. I used to wear orthotics in my cycling shoes but they needed replacing and I did not want to shell out the cash for custom orthotics and I tried the Superfeet and they have worked out good for me. The footbed conforms to the shape of your foot after a period of time and are very comfortable. If you don't have major foot problems the Superfeet will work. No experience with the Petersons, I went with the Superfeet as I could buy them over the counter at my local pharmacy. REI sells the blue capsules in their cycling department.
