I recently bought a Thinline pad, and have been using it for about 2 weeks. I really like it, but then realized (belatedly) that I should have purchased the shim-able pad instead. I already have a Mattes Corrector pad with wool shims.
I would like to use my Mattes pad to improve the saddle fit of one of my saddles but use Thinline shims instead. I would rather not pay $200 for another Thinline pad if I can avoid it.
Provided the fit is the same, is there any value in me using the Thinline shims instead of the wool ones? (I don't want to buy them if there is no Thinline "magic" in the Thinline shims )

I use Thinline shims without a "shimmable" pad to hold them. I put the saddle pad on, place the saddle on top, then lift the saddle up & shove the shims underneath. They do not shift at all while riding.
