Seems pretty expensive for something I don't know if I would like.

A lady told me that I ride with my feet not pointed straight ahead and that can cause knee pain, which I had. I didn't realise I was so I made a big effort to make sure they were pointed straight ahead and it did help.

try some "cheaper" version to start. I have both the uber expensive ($200) ones and the cheap ones ($30) and both make a difference however I have found the more joints the more comfortable they are for me. Just a matter of preference.

That's because you picked out THE MOST expensive ones, which I stated previously the Sprengers were.

Look for the generic ones that State Line, Dover, et al sell. Did you even bother to Google the term? If you had, it would have given you quite a few options a lot less expensive than the Sprengers.

Guess I'll have to try jointed stirrups myself to see if they help. I had considered the idea before but I actually don't know anyone who uses them to ask how they work for them and maybe try out.

I paid $35 for a pair of Stubben jointed stirrups at a tack swap and sale, and it's the best $35 I have spent in a long time.

My first pair of jointed I paid $50. But then, I'd already ridden in and knew I liked them.

The first time I rode in them was when a friend loaned me her tack so we could go riding. That was also the first time I encountered a girth with elastic on both ends. I ran right out the next week and bought jointed stirrups and several double elastic girths.

If I can get a pair for around $50 i'll be happy.

They look nice, let me know how you get on with them. The reviews seem good too! I hope I can find a nice pair this weekend.
