hilason tack?

So I've been looking for a tack set and have been having a hard time finding what I want in a headstall, without being crazily overpriced. I found the perfect one, made by Hilason. Buuut being that its very inexpensive, I googled the brand and found nothing but terrible reviews about Hilason brand saddles and customer service. However, nothing was mentioned about the quality of their tack sets.

So I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this brand?

Run and run fast from what I've seen of their tack.

I had found some hilason stuff I liked last year and debated on buying it but after talking to a lot of people it sounded like their stuff is very inconsistent and one thing may be nice quality and the same exact item in a different shipment may be stitched up all crooked or something else wrong with it. I decided the money was not worth gambling and found a different and more reliable source for a similar item. I may have ended up paying close to twice the price but the quality was excellent and well worth it.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

They sell way too much way too cheap on eBay. JMHO. I agree totally with getting what you pay for.

With Hilason: Run away, as fast as you can.

I have seen some CRAZY things made by Hilason, most found on the Tacky Tack of the Day blog. Many of their saddles are absolutely hilarious...like these things:

Probably the tumours from the cow they got the leather from.
