Anybody have any thoughts on this saddle? I am eyeballing one on ebay right now.

The saddle design is fine, but their quality control was not great.

The used one I looked at had the billets attached to different places on each side, making the saddle sit crooked, so I did not buy it.

I've got one that I've bought used from my instructor 13 years ago and it's still going strong. I think it's one of the original models. I'm not going to ride Grand Prix in THIS lifetime, but it seems to do the job and the horses seem to like it. Not ever going to be a $3000 saddle, but it's comfy, wears well, and if you're on a budget it might do the job.

I had somebody else mention to make sure everything on it was straight...hm.

Waiting for more pictures. For sure won't be bidding before I get those. It has a starting bid of $500 and a BIN of $600.
