Compositi Reflex wide track stirrups

Hi all,
Has anyone ever used composite stirrups on their saddle?
I wanted to try a pair of composite stirrups on my aussie saddle because the 4 bar iron ones are so heavy and always bang me in the leg when I carry the saddle (ouch!). In searching I came across a brand called Compositi. They had what I would say regular irons (composite) that came with cool footpad colors. Also they make a wide footed stirrup called wide track reflex, it has these raised grated texture pieces that grip your boot/shoe. These are the ones I choose and I must say I LOVE them! They are so light yet sturdy and durable. The foot pad actually compresses up and down with weight so they give a little when you bear down with your weight and movement. This little feature is so comfortable. I tried them out on a 30 minute ride today and can't wait to take them on a long trail ride. I can already tell my ankles and knees will thank me. I would love to change out all of my stirrups with these.

I just ordered some of these to see if they will get my toes to stop falling asleep on longer rides.

I understand there's a front and back to them, as the spring is only on one side of the pad. There should be an arrow on the pad. However, I haven't been able to find any information about which way the arrow is supposed to point. I would assume the arrow should point forward? Which way have you tried them, or have you tried both ways? Looks like your arrow is pointing back?

In the photo the arrow is pointed towards me, as the stirrup hangs on leather while saddle is not in use. I have it to where the arrow points in the direction my boot goes in and so the spring is towards the back of the footrest if that makes sense. I figured the springy part would be towards the back as I push down into the stirrup.

That makes sense. That's how was assuming they were supposed to go. Thanks!

Are your leathers too wide for the stirrup? I'm asking because it looks as if you have the leathers run through the actual stirrup, and not through the leather insert. Doesn't look very stable.
