    I have a tapered front end, and I can stand (have some leg strength/feeling/control). Next chair, I'll order a V front. When I lean back against a wall to rest, the bump in the tapered front is uncomfortable under my calves. But I've never had a V front, so I don't know if there may be something I don't like about it.

    ive had both, currently v-front, and ill stick with it. looks neater, more streamlined, frame bars follow my legs instead of highlighting them. and i agree with what chas said about how the taper can cause extra pressure (i have full sensation so its obvious to me too)

    I have a tapered front end and like it. Keeps my legs from splaying:



    Don't have sensation so don't feel any pressure.

    What keep your legs from splaying is having a correct width of footplate, so don`t worry if is tapered or V, i prefer V fronts.

    Yeah, you are probably right. I like the way the taper looks better then the V, how is that for a reason
