Opinion on Double T saddles?

I've read a lot of things saying they're crappy quality, but I've read quite a few saying they're good saddles. Of course not as good as a $2000 one, but that's obvious -you get what you pay for.

I've got my eye on this saddle if anyone knows anything about this particular one. 15" Double T Barrel Saddle With Silver Laced Rawhide Cantle & Zebra Print
So what are your guys' experience with them?

You DO get what you pay for.... That being said, a friend has a similar barrel double t out in my tack room that gets used fairly regularly and it has yet to fly apart :)

Haha, well how does your friend like it?
I have a feeling I shouldn't get one.. :P

Double T's are worth the money if you have limited funds. My BO deals them, so I look at them every day. The leather is a bit thinner than in a name brand saddle, but that is to be expected. The silver is cheap, but if you take care of it, it will last. They are built fairly well, though not as heavy as a Billy Cook per say. For the money, they are great saddles, but you have to take care of it. Don't throw it around or keep it in the hayloft for two years and expect it to last.

I do want to add that I would not buy a TT online, as they can be inconsistent, but if you find one by a dealer or tack store, then you can male your own decision. I am buying one for myself as soon as my BO findse one that doesn't have zebra or ostrich seats lol.

My friend seems to like it just fine, however I believe it may be a barrel saddle that has never seen a barrel, so to say.... :p

As I mentioned more than once, if the saddle retails for less than $400, then it wholesaled for around a hundred. Even the wholesaler makes money so think of what kind of saddle costs only $40 to make. I can't even begin to buy a side of good leather for that, never mind the other side plus all the hardware and tree that goes in to making a saddle. What is the tree made of? That is the big question. I've seen them made of wood that was full of worm/insect holes, hundreds of holes. How strong is that? Or hollow fiberglass? May as well be full or worm holes as it's not strong either.

The TT are wholesale for around 200-250 for the full size ones. They retail from 250 to 450. You do get what you pay for, but they are decent using saddles, for the most part. I would not show in one, but for everyday use them are fine

We have one in the barn. I don't like it as much as our wintecs, but it is cute, and moderately comfortable. I will say that it has taken FOREVER to break in! We are still in the process, and we have had it for close to a year.
