And just to add, I have dropped an egg from 2' + and it didn't move or break at all. It absorbs a LOT of shock haha.

I just wanted to see how MUCH it absorbs and this told me a lot ;D

One mans wrong lead is another mans counter canter. [:

An egg?? That's fantastic. I always wanted to try a superball.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I also have a wintec(although I bought the thinline to use with my stubben which is slightly too wide for my mare) My wintec has the cair system and I read you shouldn't use extra pads with it, but I figured I would give it a try and the difference is amazing. I feel a lot less "impact" with the thinline, especially when posting. I figure if the difference is that great for me it must be 10x better for my mare.

tahnks for everyones reply! I'm totally getting a thinline pad! Just to fill in anyone speculating getting one too, on eBay everyone(me included) has been getting the demo quality pads that are more than half the price and only have some small dirt marks or creases, so save now ;)

If you saddle fits padding is not a good way to go, because 1) it adds the bulk and 2) in interfere with the fit.

As for Thinline I'm not sure about less movement, but when I got it I was a very bouncy rider, so using it on my mares clearly made them more comfortable on canter. Also when I jumped without the pad I could really feel the shock with my own spine, while with the pad spine doesn't feel any discomfort on landing.
