I already have the $40 cheaper ones, and they definitely don't work. I'm glad to hear the HS ones do though in case it was the same situation and I had wasted $200 something for them. I will for sure try ebay and craigslist to see what I can find first.

I have the original Herm Sprengers, and I probably couldn't ride without them. I have an ankle held together with screws, wire and bone grafts, one total knee replacement and one knee that needs to be replaced.

I often wonder if I had had the Sprengers sooner, if I could have limited some of the knee damage.

My Sprengers absolutely feel no different from the saddle than a standard fillis iron; the difference is I can ride for much longer and that I can walk away from the mounting block after I dismount.

I definitely concur with the advice to try as many different brands as you can before making a decision. I don't know if it's absolutely necessary to spend the bucks on the Sprengers.
