"Well-Built" brand synthetic English AP saddle?

Has ANYONE HEARD OF/OWNED this brand?

If so, (or even if not!), I've tried EVERY SEARCH ENGINE, saddle forum search, etc...and can find no info on these. Seller on CL wants $75 to basically get rid of a brand new black AP version (no girth/leathers/irons) but still basically right out
Of the box.

I'd like to buy it as it's my size & "could" fit a future horse, or can always donate to the horse rescue tack sale for their revenue if not...figure only way it ISN'T a win/win @ that price brand new is if I hear it's a total hunk of junk brand (am NOT EXPECTING PERFECTION for $75! Just won't buy if someone says theirs irreparably injured their horse due to a horrid tree manufacturing flaw/it fell apart in 3 rides/that sort of thing!)...

Thanks for any relevant info in advance!!

Oops! Turns out the brand is actually called "Well Deal", though I had no additional luck finding that brand, either! Ugh.

Sorry for the misinformation!

It's garbage.

If you're looking for a decent synthetic Bates, Wintec, and Thorowgood are the ones to look for.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Well Built, Good Deal, Well Deal

Sounds like the old "Honest John's" Car Dealer Gimmick

I would avoid it at any price

Was all of the sudden reminded of something which already had me "steering that direction" prior to reading your replies (though I most certainly appreciate them nonetheless)...

I went back and looked at the pics more closely, and MUCH unlike the synthetic Wintec 2000 AP I presently ride in and LOVE, THIS saddle appears, um, shiny(?) in the underportion, & only "leather-look" in the upper...kind of like cheap pleather! It's weird and no thanks!

I'm certainly not in any hurry to own a saddle, & while the size is correct for me, it'd be a small miracle if it was to fit any future lease horse. I am not against donating it to our tack sale, but if it's crap and won't bring any $$ there, I'd rather simply donate the $75 and be DONE with it.

Thanks again, y'all, for helping me see the error of my original thoughts--you guys ROCK!!!!
