I do like the looks of the second one better! Do you know where it's made? Often the cheaper saddles that fall apart are made in India. It's hard to really give an opinion without being able to look at it, sit in it, and see you sitting in it. (different saddles fit people differently!)
While I'm not stuck on brand names (I had an unknown brand saddle for 12 years that's significantly more comfortable then my friend's $4000 Butet and amazingly better quality as well) a lot of people can vouch for the quality/comfort of certain known brands. I tend to stick to recommending those to people! Yes, Ebay
can be scary, but I bought an Antares and a Delgrange (both high end saddles) off Ebay and had great experiences both times. Do you have a tack shop nearby that sells consignment saddles?
