So, My Antares Hampton Classic arrived from Smartpak on Friday. I haven't been able to ride in it yet since Zee is still being rehabbed with handwalking :( Anyway, I looked over the saddle on Saturday and noticed that I can see an awful lot of the flocking. When I lift the panel, I can see white wool / foam under the billett attachment, and towards the back corner, where the flaps meet the panel. It looks like the bottom flap is only attached in two spots (one spot in the front, one spot in the back) and the bottom flap can move around a lot. When I lift the bottom flap, I can see a ton of flocking, and it almost looks like the leather was cut too short to cover the panels. The left flap is also not attached as strongly on the left as the right, where the front of the flap meet the tree point, and I can see flocking under there too. Is this strange, or just me??
