When western saddle maker McCall Saddles wanted a model that weighed substantially less than the traditional 40-pound-plus average, they called on Mark Jolley and Logan Zhu. Mark’s title is president and Logan’s is CEO, but at heart, “We’re product guys,” says Mark. Using technologies from some of the many other industries they’re involved in, the duo designed a tree that made McCall’s new McLite line 15 pounds lighter than its traditional contemporaries, yet strong enough to withstand a truck driving over it – repeatedly.
