That what happened to me too, twice (I actually flew off the horse over her head both times). NEVER happened with my Alamo I bought after I threw Wintec away (even on almost 90 degrees steep hill). I asked people dealing with saddles, and they said it's something about the tree in Wintec. In any case I didn't feel like experiencing it again.
I do know number of people happily use them, so it's probably a defect in certain saddles, and all depends on your luck.
