Royal King Headstalls.

Looking for a new headstall for Gibbs, I kinds like this http://www.statelinetack.com/item/ro...stall/E003753/ is Royal /king OK, or should I pass and either save up for a better new one, or look for a golden oldie?

I don't know anything about Royal King, but I love that headstall! Too bad it wouldn't fit my beast's big ol' noggin. I wonder how much my local tack guy would charge me to make one like it...just bigger. Lol

Rats, what happens to them, stretch or split, I wouldn't buy a cheap saddle, but the fit issues aren't as bad with a headstall, so what is the downside here?

Leather is dry and becasue WB is close grained it does not take oil well and will crack and eventually break, any fittings are cheap and plating will come off, conchos are tin and will look terrible after a few months.

The link does work I my end, many I found were over 50.00, try American Saddlery Headstalls, they are competitive or less in price and use Cow Leather

I had bought a show bridle of theirs a couple years ago and wasn't very happy with it. It was a great price, but the quality of the leather wasn't very good. Very stiff and cheap feeling. I personally wouldn't buy anything of theirs again.

I own this headstall of theirs, the quality isn't great but its not bad either. I have had it about 2 years and it looks the same as when I bought it, other than I dyed it to be a little darker.the conchos arent bad quality at all but the leather is not great quality. It does hold up though, I have used it probably 2x weekly since I got it and it still looks great!Royal King Texas Star Browband Headstall - Statelinetack.com

Of course they're too short. Meh. Oh, well. I think I'm going to show the headstall to Doug and see how much it would be to make one with matching 8' reins.
