Trading a Todd Jeys cutter for a Tesky?? Good or bad idea??

So I have my Todd Jeys cutting saddle for sale because its to narrow for my horse. It used to fit him ok (not perfect) then once I started riding him regularly he has gained alot of muscle and its way to narrow now. Last night at practice a friend of mine asked me if id consider trading her for her brand new Teskys cutting saddle. She said she doesn’t like it because its rough out seat and she wants smooth. My saddle is smooth and I want rough out. She bought this saddle brand new for $1500 a couple months ago and im asking $2000 for mine and she has no problem paying the difference. This weekend she is going to come over and work buffalo at my place and were going to trade for a couple days and see how we like the saddles.

Ive heard not bad things about the Tesky barrel saddles but never really heard anything about the cutters. If you have any input please let me know. Also, what is their resale value like? I buy/sell saddles constantly but I won’t bother trading for this Tesky if no one will want the saddle when a Todd Jeys are usually pretty popular.

Any input would be appreciated...Thanks!

If the cutters are anything like the barrel styles, you will love the Teskey!

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.

Most of the Teskey's cutters resale value would not be near as high as a custom name. My Piland is over 15 years old and still worth $1800-2000. Basically, the name brands in ok condition should go for around half the original price and in good condition would be up to 2/3 of that price.

I would be very careful about getting all the info on the Teskey's she wants you to buy because they have new cutting saddles from $1200-$2700 but most are $1200-$1500. In order to be worth what she paid, it would have to be "like new" and only on a horse about 10 times or less.
