LMS - 2019-01-29 8:55 AM I have the walls twisted and slanted on everything I ride.  The only way I can make hours without being crippled when I'm done!   
I used to be an die hard Walls fan until I used the Nettles with Leveler! It's night and day, IMO. I'll never go back to Walls.

I rode a friends saddle with the Nettles and the regular walls slanted-neither of them are anything like the twisted and slanted for walls.  I have an unpopular opinion about nettles but that won't go over well here! 
I did my homework and tried everyone suggested here (except of course the "leveler" with nettles as they are new) and found the slanted and twisted are the best for me

Did the Nettles you tried have the Leveler? Because that is what makes all the difference. I had a regular pair of Nettles that were fine but it is a whole different ball game with the Leveler....

Ok now, Which nettles do you like and why? Have you tried the “75’s”? I’m going to pick between the half breed and the 75s ... I think lol

I think I’ll go ahead and (Gulp) get the leveler option.

I had 75s without the Leveler. I personally did not find them conducive to barrel racing. Sold them pretty quickly. I now have two pairs of Barrel Racer Nettles with the Levelers. What I really like, other than no knee pain, is (because of how they rock) you can get up on your toes and hustle (like leaving a barrel) or plant your heels and sit really deep (like going into a turn). They’re pretty awesome. Also, again because of how they rock/rotate, I believe it would be near impossible to get a foot hung up in the stirrup if you came off.

ok I ordered the 75's with the leveler. I'm not racing much anymore just a little now and then. mostly trail, ranch and training. I get the leather tread, I had grip tread in the past (walls) and got my foot stuck in the stirrup. i'm pretty excited to get them!! thanks to rockyroad!
