I've used a lot of different pads over the years including the Professional Choice pads. The best I've ever used, and the one I'm currently using, is a 7/8 5 Star. I tried the knockoffs and found them to be junk, they just didn't hold up.
I got mine for $160 and I figure if I get 5 years from it, that's only a little over $30 per year. I found that the difference it makes in my saddle fit and my horse's attitude, it was well worth the price. I ride ~15-18 hours per week on average (more in the warmer 3 seasons and less in the winter) so I want pad that will hold up and make my horse comfortable.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
