    Default Composite Reflex irons, but wider?

    I bought the Composite Reflex stirrup irons, and they have relieved my hip/knee discomfort. However, they were only available in 4 3/4" and I'd prefer to have them a 1/4" or 1/2" wider. Does anyone know where I could find something comparable?

    Could try these, but I believe I read something where people prefer the non-flexi kind. I have the regular ones that don't flex and I absolutely love them!

    The reflex irons have a tiny bit of "give" in the base of the iron, but I think the real relief for me is in the wide base. Are the Royal Riders a "wide track" iron? Thanks

    Yes the Royal Riders have a wide base. I have the kind that has a little bit of flex in them and I love them. They are expensive, not sure if there is another alternative out there for you?

    I know you paid less than 50 for your first pair you listed, but I currently ride in these:http://cdnll.doversaddlery.com/image...7003_BROWN.jpg

    They have the widest foot bed you can get and just give you this unreal sense of stability and alignment in your whole leg and foot all the way up into your hip. Unfortunately, they do come with a price.

    I have the dark brown ones and show in the hunter ring with them.
