I've seen a lot of really crappy HDRs out there. The leather in general is not the best quality and some of the models do not put you in the best position. HOWEVER, I sat in one a while ago that was surprisingly comfortable, didn't look too cheap, and didn't do weird things with my legs. Unfortunately I have no idea which model it was.
So it seems to me it's hit and miss. Which IMO, is too big a risk when it comes to saddles. While it may be an ok lower end saddle, I suggest looking for a higher quality used saddle for the same price. I personally think Collegiates are great for their price. I've bought several used ones for our school horses for between $150-300 (NEW!) that are much MUCH better.
