I had to log in just for this thread, lol. 1st a rough out seat will get smooth with use. Depending on what type of smooth seat you have, it can be "roughed"
There is a reason that Jeys saddles cost more and are worth more than Teskey's. I have never owned a Teskey's nor have I heard anything really bad about them, but everyone I know who has bought one eventually "upgrades".
I would say, if the Teskey's fits your horse *and* you feel comfortable riding in it, then it's a good deal. If not, keep looking. Depending on the seat size you need, I have a roughout for sale and I know of at least 5 others priced nicely for sale by friends down south.

Just curious but how can you rough out a smooth seat? The seat on my Jeys is padded kind of. Im not sure if it could be roughed out. Ill attach a pic of my Jeys so you can kind of see.
Im looking for a 16". What do you have for sale? I have a few saddles and this Tesky would be my backup or I would just turn around and sell it but if I can't make any money on it then theres no point in trading for it.
I attached a pic of my Coats saddle that is my personal saddle just cause its like my child lol. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this saddle! Paid a pretty penny for it but it is nice for a used saddle.
