Wither-relief/contoured saddle pads with a round skirt?

I've been trying to find a round-skirt western saddle pad with the contoured area up over the withers (rather than a cutback). It's not for me; my boyfriend rides his TWH in a Tucker saddle with the round skirt, and he really likes the contour square pads I have. He'd just like something with a round skirt but otherwise the same (tacky-ish underside), and they're not as easy to find as I thought they'd be. We do quite a lot of trail riding throughout the year, and I can let him use one of my own pads in the meantime, but I know he'd like one of his own.

The only one I've seen so far is from Brenda Imus/Gaits of Gold, and for a number of reasons I absolutely will never purchase a product from her again. I had a bad experience with a poorly-made product from her line, and an even worse experience with her attitude when confronted with the fact that many people had similar issues with the same product.

Back to the original question, though. . .suggestions for round-skirt saddle pads with a contour wither and tacky underside? I found my own square pads for around $40 and would like to find something in a similar price range.

I believe Big Horn has (or used to have since they went out a business) a line of those. I can't remember who bought the company. Google it I guess :) But I have probably 4 or 5 of them and they work nice and last forever. About... $30 I'd guess? Depends on the tack store. They are all used on TWH's.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
