Default Saddlemen Step Up or Drag Specialties Predator III Seat?

I can't find any feedback from anyone that has tried both. Usually, I'd just pick the one that's made in the USA, but both the Step Up and Predator III are made here.
Mostly, I'll be using the seat for 50 to 100 mile trips, with the occasional short hop of 20 miles or so.

I'm leaning more towards the Saddlemen right now. I'm only considering the Predator III because of the higher backrest (4.75" vs 6") and a slightly wider seat (10" vs 11"), which could make it a little more comfortable.

As always- any help, insight, or pics are much appreciated!
