Salient is awesome. Consistent updates, great design, great demos for the whole website, as well as page templates. Makes designing easy. Mega menus on this theme could use some work as they are finicky to create. We have used this on 5-10 websites and will continue to use it as it is a great theme.
PS - Salient's version of WP Bakery Builder is the best I've seen after working with a number of themes that use WP Bakery Builder.
Have been using this for over 5 years now. Have to say it is the best of the best. Have made over 12 client websites including my own on it. It constantly has updates insuring the newest standard of websites, giving you the most professional finish, Couldn't recommend this more.
