I personally love the Barefoot treeless saddles. Then again, I'm a crazy teenager who does cross country, bareback :P
The one big complaint I've heard from many people who ride in treeless saddles is that there isn't a whole lot of support if your horse is misbehaving. If you can sit a big buck bareback, you'll be fine! If your horse doesn't have much spook/buck/rear/bolt in him/her, you'll be fine as well. But I wouldn't reccomend one for a young/inexperienced/badly behaved horse, just because the things you can do in a saddle aren't always things you can do in a treeless.
Where there's a bay, there's a way!
