Value of treeless saddles?

Two for sale, on is a Barefoot, the other a Torsion. What is anyone's experience with either and what should one expect to pay in used but very good condition. Both are complete units with pads. Thanks

A person living in a remote area has asked me to sell these and I have no idea of their value as used. I need to put something down for price. Help?

They are worthless. I'll do your friend a favor and take them off her hands for free.

Barefoot is going to be dependant on the type of barefoot as there are several versions at different price points. From what I typically see they go for about $150-$200 less than purchase price new for just the saddle. So a $800 saddle I usually see listed $600-650 and that usually is not including the pad.

I would assume torsion would be similar mark-down though they are a higher priced saddle. So if one is $1300 new I would look at $1100 or so.

With the pads you might want to price a bit higher.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Is the Torsion a better treeless than the Barefoot. The T is leather, the BF synthetic. I work on saddles, not these things. I've researched them a bit but have no idea of how they compare. I was hoping for rider opinions. Perhaps I should start a new thread.
