I'm sorry, but I have a REAL problem with the term "Asian junk." It's a gross generallization. I"ve seen enough junk from Europe, Asia, Africa, USA, Canada, Mexico, South America, etc., that I could use ANY geographic area in from of the word "junk" and be as accurate and reliable as any other comment in this thread.
Fine. Some specific manufacturers make, in the opinion of some, junk. So be it. We've all seen it. But "Asian" is NOT a manufacturer and to denigrade the entire contintent just because you've had a bad experience with one specific product that is made there is nothing but stupidity and bigotry. Period.
If you don't like Hilason saddles, feel free to say so. But don't trash an entire continent just because you don't like one product.
