I use that one as well, except in the felt rather than neoprene. I've had a few horses get rubbed from neoprene.

Yeah, the felt are nice too. I just find that they collect and hold sweat and that causes the girth to rub worse than the neoprene.. I really like this series of girth though, especially that I can just strip it off, wash it, it wears nice on all of my horses.. I also ride with a loose saddle so it helps "grip" if that makes sense.

I still like good old mohair. Or the new alpaca cinches.

As for the latigos and off billets, I used to like nylon because it would slide over itself and tighten easier. But a neighbor got me into using leather, and you know, I use leather on both of my saddles now! I got used to the extra "stick" when it slides over itself (and to make it less sticky, avoid saddle soap on your latigo). Now I think nylon looks kind of cheap.

I use the Professional Choice VenTech and love them. They are my favorite so far.
