I do not have any experience with the JC Martin but I am considering a curriente. I have some friends who own a guest ranch and all of their saddles are Corrientes and they have been really happy with them. Seem like a well made saddle, comfortable and reasonably priced. I do like the wade style and my friends have a few of them but for their guests they prefer the association trees...particularly the "bull moose". A Wade from them is likely to be my next saddle.
