eBay auction ending soon...Courbette Futura? Is this a good deal?

Hey all! I'm looking at this saddle, but can't find anything about this exact one online (Courbette Futura close contact with no knee roll or padded flaps). I also didn't realize that some Courbettes are Swiss made but some are German made and it may make a difference as far as quality goes. I'm interested in Courbettes because of the flex trees since my mare will be changing as she gets into shape.

Does anyone know anything about this particular saddle and whether this is a good deal or not? I'm hoping someone can answer soon since the auction is over very soon

.

Here is the Link New Courbette Futura 16 5 Close Contact Saddle | eBay

250.00 is great price, they sold for about 799.00 New , They have not made that model in years, surprised to see a new one :)

The Swiss made are very good, the German Models are great, but the German model are usually 1,500.00 or more.

.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Kevin

Thanks! I didn't realize it was an older model. I think I'll bid! I'm looking for a jumping saddle and wanted one with knee rolls but can't seem to find one in my price range that is of decent quality.
