Mattes half pad review and sizing?

Whoever has tried these half pads before, what your opinion?

Also, would a medium fit my 17" wintec saddle? It sits on the rolls a little too much on a small fleeceworks half pad, and I want to make sure a medium Mattes wouldn't do that. Thanks!

I bought a VERY used Mattes half pad off of Ebay.. I'm talking so used that I bought it for only $50 and that included shipping. It did the trick for my half arabian whose saddle just seems not to fit right, regardless of the gullet I use. It is very nice quality, and I'm sure a new one is 1000x nicer.

I would check the sizing guides for your saddle, but my pad fits my 18" perfect and I think it's a large but I'm not sure

Kylie, what size was yours? Just curious cause if medium fit your 18" then I shouldn't have to worry about my saddle!

Also I am buying mine used as well, $60 :) that's why I want to make sure it'll fit first!

A medium is said to fit up to 17" and the large is up to 19".
