Wintec Saddles. Opinion ?

So i was looking through some new horse magazines my dad got,
AND I saw an ad by Wintec Saddles, They have new all purpose saddles out, so i just had to take alook, i would like to get one for christmas.
who uses/ used this type of saddle brand and how do you like it ?
just give me loads of feedback, and what do you think ?

Im looking at these two :

Wintec | All Purpose

I've tried several models and found that the channel between the saddle panels (in the back) do not properly clear the horse's spine and caused pain. The Wintec Wide All Purpose is the only model that has a wide spinal channel, but it is FOR WIDE WIDE horses only. If you have a flat backed, broad horse, this one is for you. Other than that one, I don't care for Wintecs and they caused tremendous pain on my horses....just an honest opinion.

I LOVE my wintec! It fits my horse to a T (he has high withers). I also find it extremely comfortable. Ive had mine for 3 years and Ive had no problem.

My friend has a wintec too, and she absolutly loves it, and it fits her horse quite well too.

Most of our students either have the Isabella or the 2000 models, but everyone love their Wintec's

We found a place with great prices and great service on Wintecs, if you decide on one.

I've always loved Wintecs. I've not had any major fitting issues with them.

Thank you all for the Opinions,
:)
I plan on using it on Marshmellow and twister, As mashy is trained english and twister, well.. im going to train/ ride her english.

I can post photos of them, to see if you think the saddle will go and fit well on there back.

Also i am 5'4" almost 5'5", And im 110 pounds, usually 112 pounds, so what size of seat should i have ? im thinking about a 16.5?
