The saddle business is like the auto businiess, you don't want to bring out the best designs first, gotta spread it out over the years. The cantles will get higher, offering better support but it could be another 10 years. If you've never ridden in a saddle with a high cantle you don't know what you are missing. That is why cowboys rode tall in the saddle. The high cantle supported the hips and correctly aligned the back.
