Herm sprenger stirrups?

Anyone have them? Worth the money? I'm looking at the 4f because of my knee hip and ankles problems.

They're definitely nice, but you can get knock offs that work just as well for less money.

Google jointed stirrups, and you'll find all kinds of places that offer different brands for less than the HS.

Search "jointed stirrups" on this forum, and you'll find a couple of different old threads where we debate the merits of various types at great length.

I have the Sprengers, the old ones, not the 4Fs, and probably couldn't ride without them, as I have one titanium knee, one knee needing replacement soon and an ankle held together with wire and screws.

I was told at the time I got them not to get the knock offs and pay the money for the Sprengers, but in the meantime, I think the knockoffs have gotten better and the Sprengers more outrageous.

Maura, I have the Metalab jointed stirrups. Definitely better quality than some, and not as outrageously priced as the HS.

I love mine. I can't ride more than 1/2 hour in hard irons anymore. With the jointed, I can ride pretty much all day without my back, ankles, hips, and knees hurting too much.

I gave my old jointed pair to a trainer friend of mine when I bought the new ones. She's still using them. The only reason I switched was because I wanted the black rubber coverings, and the first set had grey.

I'm thinking about going to an all black jointed. The whole stirrup, not just the rubber cover over the joints, is black. Snazzy!

I have HS and love them. Like others, I am guessing I would not be riding anymore if it was not for them. Just 10 minutes in the saddle with not jointed irons and my hips and knees ache miserably.

I have tried knock offs and I found them to be miserably inferior. That was quite some time ago (when jointed irons first were available every where) so I am guessing that I should try them again, since I am sure the quality has improved.

My HS irons have lasted me a very long time, so worth the investment (even more so since I purchased them at a scratch and dent sale and I paid less than $20 for them).
