    currently I have a E30 seat on my PVC rig. it's leather and comfortable but it's very very heavy, and the incline adjustment is not working, it's stuck at a position(though workable)

    Now I'm rebuilding my rig using 8020 and is looking for a new seat. I want something lighter.(so in the future if I go for motion rig I can use the seat too).

    some say JEGS plastic seats are comfortable and good, but I never tried anything like that.(a hard plastic seat without any paddings)..
    like this:

    anyone has experience using it in a simracing rig?

    or any suggestion on a affordable seat?($100-ish or under)
    thanks.

    Yes, they are reasonably comfortable, though you should add the padded cover. Consider the kits that include sliders & padded cover.
