I agree with what RTP and Watchman just said.
I would add another point, I read on the AE thread that AE will be introducing the Macneil on a different last. I used to own the Macneil but sold it b/c that last didn't work for me. I may give it another shot in this new last. The Macneil is a bit sleeker than the Alden Barrie last IMO.
