Experiences with girth converters?

I have been looking everywhere for an english girth that is long enough for my horse, as far as I've seen though I'd have to buy one off line and they always end up being between $30 and $40. When it comes to horses I try to save as much money as I can without compromising on safety. I just came across these english to western girth converters and was wondering what kind of experience people have had with them. It'd end up being cheeper for me to get them, but I don't want to compromise on safety, because it seems the more things you are attaching to the saddle the more things that could possibly break.. but I don't really know... any input would be appreciated!

I have never used them personally, I've seen them being used never heard any bad about them. I wouldn't recommend showing in them.

I have never used a girth converter, and did not even know what one was. I have a big bellied draft cross and have had issues finding a long enough girth over the years. When he is particularly "rotund" I use one of these.

$12, and work well. Many times I just need it to get the girth started, then can remove it to actually ride.

^^^^Handy dandy little gadget when the girth is too small. I have used one, worked like a charm.
