I'd say look into used treed one - will be much cheaper and easier on you.
I've heard more people say that, if you buy a good saddle (which I think I found some, pricey indeed), it'll never slip. Y'know, versus those who say it's bad and hurts the back and such.
Anyway, I might have found a saddle thanks to Equilove. Now I just need to hurry up and have money before it sells. XD
