I've also cliniced under Olympic level eventers who haven't mentioned my saddle (the wintec) it's all a matter of opinions :)
Yes, you're right, it is a matter of opinion. But the opinions you are going to get will be different from the opinions I recieve due to the different riding styles that we see in the area's we live.
I think it depends on the country. Here in North America, as you've seen and learnt by frequenting this forum - our form and style here is much different from what you see in Australia, due to the huge influence of Hunters that derived here in the 50's thanks to George Morris and a hanful of other "Greats" during Morris's era.
In Europe - England, Ireland, Scottland, Wales, New Zealand, Australia - the riding style is very different. I can turn on my BBC channel and watch Grand Prix Level Jumping Comps and see very different styles of riding in compareson to what I grew up with here in N.A.
So if I went to your Country and cliniced under an Olympic Level Jumper or Eventer with how I ride, I am sure I am going to get quite different opinions there in compareson to what I get here. And if you came here and rode in your Wintec in the style of riding that you grew up with, you'd get different opinions from the Olympic Riders here, in compareson to what you would there.
The Wintec I posted, is the model that came out in 1996. That is the first Wintec Model that came out with the Cair and the Gullet Change System. It is the same Wintec that you own. This is the model that came out with the Wintec 2000 model - and came out just before the 2010 model.
I also agree with the idea that as you improve you get a saddle that is designed for your discipline - but for those who don't have great ambitions they are great saddles.
I compleately agree.
