Corbin or UUltimate seat for tall rider?

I hear the mustang and saddlemans push you up and with a 36 in inseam i cant have that, so whats the best for a tall rider, these are the two that keep coming up and well and redoing your stock seat. Opinions please!

I fitted up the Ultimate on my 07 classic lt a few months ago. All that I can say is that it is heaven after the stock seat. I now get annoyed at having to waste time refueling. The backrest is way more useful than I thought it would be. Having no screen the backrest takes all the strain off my arms at high speed. I recently did a 6 hour ride and could have hopped back on and done it again. On the stock seat after 2 hours my arse was aching big time as were my arms and back. The ultimate isn't cheap but it was worth double that for me.
As for height, I'm 6 foot and it fits perfect. I didn't notice much position difference over stock.

Corbin sits you lower and back. You may want to consider forward controls as well.

Them be Corbin Beetle bags from an HD Softail. I graphted a Drifter fender onto my bike and needed stretched out bags, these fit the bill with minimal modifications.
