Neither. On the one hand, Sprint Manufacturing's price isn't nearly
what it used to be:
> From: "Sprint Manufacturing"

On the other hand, I hated what Sargent did to my seat so much that I
used the closed cell foam out of their seat to make my modified
Thunderbird seat and threw the rest of their garbage away. As best I
can tell from looking around, they use the same saddle pattern for all
Thunderbird Sports; wide, cupped slightly under your bum, looks like a
13 year old designed and manufactured it. I found them to be a total
waste of a great big sum of money. Just my US$0.02 on the topic,
though: lots of people are happy with their work.
