Used is the way you want to go. Stick with name brands that you recognize: crosby, collegiate, HDR, wintec, stubben, courbette, etc. Some other brands that aren't made anymore but are decent include Avante, whippy, borreli, zaldi (still made, but not sold in the USA), etc.

Look for saddles that say made in any country in Europe or Argentina. Do NOT buy ANY no-name saddle. They are not worth it.

Pony, try
I've gotten several saddles from them and have been more than happy with both. They carry several well noted brands such as Circle Y, Billy Cook, and Rocky Mountain Sadderly (I LOVE my saddle made by these guys!)
