Thinline vs. thinline ultra

Anyone have any strong feelings one way or the other? Any personal experience with either?

I have the thinline countour pad and the trifecta pad which I think is the ultra thickness. Both are equally effective. It's just a difference in thickness of the pad and how much bulk you can fit under your saddle. I would go with the thinner one given if they are around the same price. The thicker one is mostly for beginner riders who really bounce around up there and horses with sore backs. The ultra is more a preventive shock absorbing pad.

Thanks for the input!

No problem. I forgot to add, you can add shims to the trifecta pad. If you have a horse who's a little lop side, it's a great feature.
