They're a hard saddle to find used though, so your best bet would be to wait for a sale.
If it helps at all, I felt the same way about the Isabel until I did sit in it. It's like a straight jacket. I don't get how anyone can sit relaxed in that thing. You're stuck in it like an amusement park ride. I hated it.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

My dream is a passier ovation (i think). I've sat in it... sooo comfy. To me Bates and Wintec are all the same now. I really don't like the quality of the leather, it reminds me of the cheap saddles you can get on e-bay.

The isabel line does look rather constricting. There a blocks and bumps everywhere. I want some level of freedom.
