Alamo Barrel Saddle

Does anyone have any experience with them? I have the chance to buy one barely used (only used once) for $350, it was listed as $650 when I first stumbled upon it a few weeks ago. It does not have stirrups, id have to buy my own. However I'm seeing both good and bad reviews, honestly more bad than good. I loveee this saddle but I do not want a piece of junk. Thankyou everyone in advance(:

I'm not positive it'll be lots of help, but... :)

I never deal with BARRELL saddles, but I have Alamo Trail Pleasure saddle for over 3 years and I really like it! Even though I don't ride western anymore (switched to dressage), I don't want to sell it: it looks like new still, very comfortable sit, and high withers clearance (which was critical for me). But (as I said) barrel of the same maker can be very different...

I've seen them and know people that have onwed them. They liked them and they seem like a nice saddle to me. I'd buy one anyway. and stirrups are easy to find.
