    I've never used a cambridge, but I have a stubben saddle and it's really good quality. I'm not really sure about others.. and I live in england. I know keiffer is a realible (but usually expensive) make, though I've never seen a saddle of theirs so I couldn't tell you for certain.

    I have a Cambridge and I love it! Excellent quality and its beautiful! I'm surprised that they aren't more expensive. The build is good and strong and the leather is wonderful! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a superb saddle! WONDERFUL SADDLE!

    Cambridge is junk. Cheap Indian leather- hard as rock, impossible to break in.

    any saddle you can get for $99 is not worth the energy you spent to find it.

    ****, ****, ****.

    Find a well-used crosby PDN for $150 and call it a night.

    No, their not a good buy. Any saddle you can get under $200 tends to be junk, unless you get one ofthe pencil knee roll flat saddles (prix des nations [sp?] ) or something similar, you can getthem fairly cheap.
