Roping Saddle

I'm just browsing around and wonder what you guys think of these saddles? I'm really not good with brands and that sort of thing so I'd love some opinions!

Royal King..... no way in a million years

Blue River ..... looks more like a Double T, so no on that one too

Tex Tan .... Basic Saddle, not a great true roping saddle, imo

Tex Tan is a good Saddle when you get to the higher end models

Here is am un-biased review site Roping Saddles

Of course not every brand is listed, there are hundreds of good brands and 10 or so terrible brands (most of which are made outside the US and Canada)

If you look at the first saddle, you will see that there is no curve from the deepest part of the seat to the hand hold. Compare this to the curve in the TexTan. This offers the rider crotch support. As saddle seats get longer much of this curve is lost. It may not seem like a big deal but does make a real difference especially after riding four or five hours. The only saddle I'd consider is the TexTan but would likely look for higher quality if you plan on doing a lot of roping.

I guess it depends on the Tex tan. I tried a Tex Tan imperial reiner and HATED it. Couldn't take it back fast enough. Stiff and uncomfortable, untwisted stirrups, which I hated......Perhaps an older one would be a different story. I was NOT impressed.

Perhaps for the $$ you would be better served to look for a good used one on eBay-like a used Leddy. They are fabulous.

My budget is in the $1500 - $1600 range, I want something that will be comfortable to work in every day.

In the past I have found some McCall wades used for about that much.
Look on Ranch World Ads and some of the FB trading pages, Barter Town, CowPuncher Swap Shop, Buckaroo Trading..sometimes they have decent stuff on there.
You could pick up a real decent used saddle for that price.
