Thoughts on Circle Y Flexlite Trail Saddle

Hello all! Wasn't too sure if I should post here or in the review section. Looking for some advice and thoughts from you guys regarding the Circle Y Flexlite line. I found one in my area for quite a good deal and have heard great things about them. They only thing I've never seen is the angled rear rigging. Do any of you have one of these? How do you like it?

I believe that's what they call center fire rigging. It's supposed to distribute the weight better. A lot of endurance saddles have it.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I have the Circle Y Sheridan flex tree saddle and absolutely love it! The rigging was new to me, but I've grown to like it. Once you get the hang of it, it's really simple!

I have a circle Y with the new rigging, i was use to front and rear cinch, this took a bit of getting use to but I like it just fine now;)

Don't take life so seriously. After all no one gets out alive.

Thank you all for the help! I am going with a Circle Y park and Trail with the flex tree! Hopefully it fits, it is the wide tree but still on the smaller end. Crossing my fingers it fits, it's from a neighbor who owns the barn down the road. Brand spankin' new and she's letting me have it for $650 since that's all she'd get to trade it in!
