Honestly, everyone thinks Wintec sells "quality", "expensive" saddles just because they are a "name brand." It reminds me of the way teenagers buy Aeropostle and Hollister because they believe their clothes are "expensive" and "fine quality." It's an impulsive purchase, I have NEVER known a Wintec saddle to last more than two or three years. What type of jumping/close contact saddle do you have? I might be interested in purchasing it from you!
I have ridden in a variety of Wintec saddles. The knee rolls seem to "fall apart" over time, and their is very little cushion (stuffing). Don't buy based on price, make sure you have a test ride, especially when buying online. Beware of sellers who do not except refunds or returns.
I have little experience with HDR saddles but was actually considering purchasing one myself. I have only heard great things about them, but of course, there are much better saddles out there. It all really depends on your budget and the best saddle for that amount. Those saddles aren't really worth as much as they are asking, I believe them BOTH to be overpriced. :)
