Anyone tried the thinline saddle pads?

Hey, has anyone tried the English thin line pads, the ones you can put shims in? I've decided to get an actually good saddle pad not the crappy ones you get from anywhere.

If you haven't tried the thinline ones any others you like? I'm looking for something with good shock absorption but also one I can put shims in.

I didn't try the one with shims, but I got the contour thinline pad (after doing research and checking the cons/pros of it over the internet), and so far happy with it (I use for year or so). I believe thinline has 30 days trial period so you can return one if you don't like it, but IMO they worse the money you pay (and indeed absorb the shock).

Do you mean that they are worth the money you pay? They look pretty nice on the internet. Maybe I'll try one out, too.

Ha-ha, you are right! I was in hurry as I typed. :)

Yes, they are worth every penny you pay for them. Even though they are very thin they are really good to absorb the shock, and in fact being so thin was what I liked when I was looking for one to buy - it doesn't add bulkiness to your saddle as those fleece half pads do. They have standard and ultra. Ultra is VERY thin (I've seen in Dover and decided it's little too thin for me). But the standard was just fine. Also contour pad is on bigger side, so if you have size 17+ saddle (as mine) it may be a better choice.

I have some thinline pads and have been happy with them. For shimming though, I prefer Skito pads. Their shims are tapered and can be custom cut/trimmed for no extra cost.

I have two - The Cotton Trifecta pad with normal Thinline, and I just bought a new Ultra Thinline Contour Pad on the weekend.

I used the Trifecta pad for a while under my custom saddle, but stopped using it as I felt it added too much bulk under a saddle that already had a good fit. I still use it under my wintecs and my friend uses it under a wintec on her boy too.

I bought the Ultra thinline to go under my custom saddle. I haven't tried it with that saddle yet but put it on Latte last night under her Wintec and it was good - Very non-slip and not too bulky.

My horses acunpuncturist/bodyworker/chiropractor was the first to import Thinline to Australia and I am lucky that he lets me pay the pads off as I go.
