What about the local auction or consignment saddles in local stores? At least you can try those. I personally don't like to buy from ebay
something that expensive without trying. It took me 5 stores and 20-30 saddles to try (I mean just to sit in) before I found one which would fit my butt. Although I'm picky too. Lol! The good thing we have number of stores in 80 miles radius and 2 auctions just 20 miles away from me, but I know it's not available everywhere.
