    Was looking at saddles and saw a super cheaply priced Tucker. Was comparing pictures to ones I’ve seen online and this one looks just a little different somehow
    Yes I know they have the stirrups on wrong! :ROFLMAO:

    Also, how can I tell if it’s a flex tree?

    Right? Every Tucker Trooper saddle I’ve seen, directly under the seat cushion, you can see it’s billets. This one doesn’t have any. And is only $100.

    I dont think anyone in their right mind would sell a tucker for $100 if it was real.

    I don't think it is a Tucker, but I don't think it is junk, and I do think it is worth a hundred bucks.

    That tree isn't one that gets put in junk saddles!

    I'm not 100% sure, but this is the type of tree used by Jack Haggis and The Saddle Guy--both of which produced very high quality trooper saddles.

    If you don't purchase it, send me the link.

    That might be a Tucker. A client of mine has one similar to it.

    Pretty sure that’s not a tucker. My guess would be a knockoff of some kind. If it’s a tucker it’d be stamped and should have a serial number. Every one I’ve seen has a stamp somewhere.
