I don’t have a definitive answer to that question, but my very heavy (12 lbs. I think) Losmandy side-by-side saddle seems quite solid and rigid for the small but heavy refractors I put on it.
I’m sure others will correct me if I’m wrong, but I suspect that the lower scope position (closer to the mount’s pivot points) of a side-by-side setup potentially make tracking and guiding slightly more accurate. But that’s a wild guess.

The discussion about side to side systems has me wondering - Which has less flexure; side to side or piggyback ?
