Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: Endurance, leather/cordura. Because of concerns about fit I opted to buy a used one as it's easier to resell if it didn't fit.
Likes: Lightweight which is likely attributable to the fiberglass tree.
Dislikes: As I really checked the saddle over I discovered the leather holding both front and back rigging rings is of a poorer quality. Nothing to do with the fact the saddle was used. The metal D rings, cinch rings are chrome plated, which will rust and have done so. No mention of a fiberglass tree nor the maker of the saddle, just Made in America. It's a $350 saddle that NBS is selling for over $600.
Quality: The saddle appears to be one made by Big Horn but it isn't. Big Horn uses Ralide, fiberglass reinforced wood and flex trees, not solely fiberglass. Because of this a Big Horn is a little heavier. Also BH doesn't cheap on leather quality nor the hardware.
Summary: When saddle shopping always find out what the tree is made of. It has always been my advice and I didn't listen to myself.
Usefulness Rating: 2.25 out of 5.
