Love, Love, Love every Stubben I have sat in, but especially my new Genesis with Biomex seat. I can't say enough about how my well it fits both me and my horse. Worth every penny!
Also rode in a Barnsby that was very nice for trail riding bc it was so cushy. Prefer the Stubben for "real" riding though (i.e., ring work and jumping). Gives me a better feel of the horse. Sort of the difference between a luxury or a sports car - they're both nice depending on what you want out of it.
It could be that the saddle you used had a narrow twist when you are used to a wider one or a slightly higher cantle. That can take a little getting used to and would generate the discomfort you said you experienced until you rode in it a few times and got used to it.
