Tough 1 barrel saddle, Corriente barrel saddle?

I'm trading my roping saddle for a barrel saddle, and I have two people who are interested.

The first is a 15" Tough 1 barrel saddle that looks pretty nice, but I don't know much about the brand. I'm looking to find out about the quality?

The second is a 16" Corriente barrel saddle which I haven't seen pictures of yet. I've rode in one or two and I like them pretty well. Does anyone have opinions on these?

I'm basically trying to decide which one would be best, and if the Tough 1 were my only option is it an okay saddle to have.

I'll try to post pictures of the Tough 1 saddle. Also, I take barrel lessons in a 14.5" saddle, and feel alright, maybe a little small, and my roping saddle is a 16" and I feel fine. So should both fit alright?

And if any of this doesn't make sense, I'm sorry I'm on painkillers from surgery lol.

I don't have a Tough 1 saddle, but I've used other stuff from Tough 1 and its incredibly cheap cruddy quality.
I'd steer clear from the saddle, it's probably India made and bad quality.

Check this out. Barrel Saddles:The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

If I where You I'd run from that Tough One barrel saddle. The barrels you'll be running around are probably better constructed and be worth more.

We actually have two corrientes, a roper trophy, and a custom barrel saddle.
Both are nice saddles, please post the pics of the one you're looking at when you can.

Okay here's pictures of the 16" Corriente. The leather looks like it could use a good conditioning but other than that what do y'all think?

From what I know of Tough-1 and having a Corriente barrel saddle myself, I would always choose the Corriente. They're wonderful quality for their price. That seat looks more padded than mine, but the only thing is that their barrel saddles aren't as high-cantled and snug as something like Circle Y would make. Mine has a very broad, flat seat and lower cantle compared to other barrel saddles. I still really like it, just mentioning that.
