Fallis saddle

i was wondering if anyone can give me an opinion on a Fallis (balanced ride) custom saddle. My trainer swears by them and i am in the process of ordering one which takes 3 months to make as John Fallis needs to order the tree first.. i've heard good things about them but would like more info if anyone can help.

Be careful. What one rider finds comfortable and swears by it, another may not. We are all structurally different. The with of the pelvis, how the femur is attached, etc. See if you can try the trainer's saddle out on a good 4 hour ride and then decide. Most women are more comfortable in a saddle with a narrower twist because of the female structure.

Yes, I rode in my trainers saddle a few times. Its smaller (14) than what i want which would be a 14 1/2. The saddle is built with the strups up further than the cinch. (4inches) The reason is because that is the balanced place in which you ride. I really like that idea. its a wonderful saddle and i just wanted more imput into the Fallis brand. The one I'm riding in now is a circle y and i like it but it is way to big.(16) and theres all this slop . The saddle i am getting makes me feel more secure because it doesn't have all that rom to move around in and slide off.
