synthetic western saddle...anyone know the brand?

My mom and I went to a local western tack shop, and I saw a western saddle that I just love!
But I can't remember the brand or the name.
Anyone know?

It's synthetic, with swaid (spelled wrong) seat (not sure if the seat is real leather or synthetic). It's made in the USA. It has copper looking buckets and such. It does not come with a back sintch, though it has the rings for one to go on.

Have any ideas? I know the name of the saddle (NOT brand name) has the word "Easy" in it...at least I'm pretty sure it does.

Also, if you know what saddle I'm talking about...how good is it? Is it worth the $625 they are asking?
If I plan on showing in western...would I not be able to do it in a synthetic?
How good is it for trail riding? How easy is it to clean? Is it waterproof?

Thanks in advance!

I know it isn't Wintec...for WIntec isn't an Amerian Brand...
Maybe Fabtron...sounds familiar

Anyone have any input on this version of the saddle?

I've never had much experience with synthetic english saddles, but I have nothing positive to say about the western ones, of any brand. They're not dependable, or comfortable(even if they are when they're new, it doesn't last). I've never had/knew someone that had one that didn't have something wrong with it. They don't withstand any rough use, and they fall apart.

Sorry for all the negativity :), that's just my opinion.

I have a fabtron and I love it. I don't have that model. The seat is hard on mine, soft when I got it but the padding wore quickly. Tthe rest of the saddle is made well so it makes up for it completely. I just buy a seat cushion.

Abby, do you think it's worth the $625 they are asking for it? The retail price (on the tag) says $750, but the guy said he'd sell it for $625. But not sure if that's a good price or not
