Thoughts on the Wintec 500 Jump??

Hey everyone!

I'm looking at the Wintec 500 Jump saddle, since my current jumping saddle is too short-flapped for my leg. I sat in one today at the local tack store, and it was like heaven. XD I put my stirrups up four holes shorter than what I usually jump in, and my legs were STILL way behind the edge of the flap, and felt long! It seemed like it could be perfect for me.

What do you guys think of the Wintec line in general? What about the specific 500 Jump? Quality? Maintenance?

Thanks for any opinions!

Their jump saddles don't tend to get good reviews. They tend to put you in a wrong position, so I've heard.

Iwas going to have one shipped from Australia, none of my local tack stores can even ORDER them, and there's none on e-bay.
Please tell me which tack store carries them!

Don't you dare take the 17.5" one!!! I'm saving up for it. XD There are actually quite a few in America that sell them; I'm sure Millbrook isn't the CHEAPEST one out there. =] I'm definitely going to look around before getting it from Millbrook.

Kim- There wasn't an opinion in there, somewhere, was there? ;)

No, no opinion. Never sat in one - I stay away from Wintecs myself because they are very flat tree'd and they do not work well with Nelson's typical TB back.

I used to stay away from them because of the fact that I hated the new ones, but I'm getting to the point where I NEED to find something that fits me very well. I can't keep going in the CTD, sadly, as much as I like it. Sarah forced me to sit in the wintec today, and now I kinda really want it.

What size of saddle do you need? I know you want a 17.5 but do you take a Wide? Or a Medium?
