Wintec 500 Close Contact vs. Wintec 500 Jump

So, I have been drooling over Wintec's new 500 CC. I have sat in it and really liked it, and planned on ordering it next week(tack store doesn't have it in brown). The only thing I was a tad worried about was that the seat was a little bit flat, and I know I'll likely need some extra support since I'll be using it to "start" Sunny.

I then stumbled upon the new Wintec 500 Jump online. It looks to be identical to the CC, but the seat is deeper.
Do you guys know of any other differences aside from the deeper seat? If this is the main difference, I may decide to purchase the Jump instead of the CC. I wish I had the option to sit in this one, but I don't.

I would really appreciate any information anyone could give me. Thanks!

I have a Wintec, and the longer I own it the more I hate it. I *think* its a Wintec 500 Jump but I'm not absolutely sure. If you want I can check next time I'm at the barn.
Anyway, the channel is REALLY wide. It is five fingers wide in some spots. Its comfy, but ill fitting. I like the CAIR, it seems to really shape well to the horse's sides. Another complaint. The saddle isn't extremely well balanced, so when I widen the gullet even one size I lose any and all wither clearance. Its a "meh" fitting saddle at best. I'm probably keeping mine to have in the future when I need a saddle that fits okay on any horse. Or to sell it, seeing as I spent $90(!!!) on a gullet kit...
I'd say no to getting this particular Wintec. Also, if you're starting a horse in it, I'd recommend the Jump because it has a bit of a deeper seat. I'm pretty sure this is my saddle, because the seat is so deep I sometimes struggle to get into a two-point.

Yeah, looks like mine. Mine's brown though.
If you're insistent on synthetic, I've heard Bates synthetic saddles are a lot higher quality than Wintecs (even though they're technically by the same people). That's just what I've heard.
