This is an excellent opportunity for G-11 owners who want a 14" tip-in saddle at the great price of $139.00 plus shipping (save $26).

I have four older style 14" dovetail saddles in stock. They all have blue anodized aluminum knobs. There are only two differences between these saddles and the latest design

1. No offset Astro-Physics mounting holes. There are two sets of G-11 mounting holes. One set is centered for normal mounting. The other set is offset for tail-heavy SCTs. On the newer models we are doing the same for Astro-Physics mounting holes, but these saddles don't have the second set of Astro-Physics holes.

2. The clamps on these saddles use 1/4-20 NC threads. The newer models use 1/4-28 NF threads. The 1/4-28 threads are a little stronger, but the difference is subtle.

For more information, see my web page.
