Suggestions for a high quality hunter bridle?
I have been happy with older Crosby, older Beval, Edgewood, Courbette, and Stübben in the past. I like an attractive, yet durable bridle that isn't too soft, flappy, and dark brand new (I'm leery of a lot of the French brands due to this) and is similar in quality to the leather found on a lot of older (30+ years old) tack.
I've looked around and have found several brands that I'd like to know more about. Do any of you have experiences with these bridles, and would you recommend them?
Bennett's Hunter Fine Bridles (Jimmy's son)

Exselle (made in same factory as older Crosby stuff)
Horse | Man/Valencia Saddlery
KL Select Italia
Or should I just stick with an Edgewood?
