Porter, Alamo saddles and Wade trees

Does anyone know anything about the Porter saddles out of Phoenix, AZ?

Also, any experience positive or negative with an Alamo?

Last question: Where does a wade tree fit in the tree 'hierarchy'? I am looking probably for FQHB, would a wade suffice?

Thanks so much. I REALLY need advice and would appreciate any.

Wade is a style of tree. You can get one in fqhb if you want but they also make them in different bar types. If you're going to buy a factory made saddle I would suggest Corriente Saddle Company. That's what I ride and for the money they are a really good value.

Well I was inquiring specifically about Porters because theres some good deals on them, but I've never heard of them. Seeing if theyre worth a darn I guess...

I have Alamo Pleasure Trail saddle for 2 years already (got it from local saddlery after trying like 20 saddles :) ). Was my preference over TexTan and Billy Cook. Still looks like new, very comfortable to ride, and fits both of my mares (one round qh, other thinner paint). It gives enough wither clearance for my paint (unlike many saddles I look into) and with qh bars lay nicely on my qh.
