Im confused then, why would the buckle on your current leathers have anythign to do with webbers ? Don't the webbers replace your leathers.?
I don't like the Aussi rigging, and I didnt have a saddle that really fit Emma, Both my aussies need new billets but can't really see a decent way to do it and any one you ask immediately turns their nose up at an Australian saddle. I guess they figure since they once saw a cheap hunko junk $100 aussi, they know all about them.
The Trailmaster I have been using on Emma is getting some wear issues, I went back and forth between a down under Long rider, tucker or Circle y gaiter. Went tucker because I could put my hand on it. And not have to mail order.
