The first ride on this saddle I was ready to throw away, but one of my fellow cyclists who recommended the Pro Link to me said give it time it gets better. He was right, the ride gets better every time out. So, if you buy one be patient, you won't be sorry.
Same with my Selle OktaviaBrian C.

my friend. do yourself a huge favor and pick up one of the new pro-link's
by selle italia. this saddle is wonderfully flat, just a tick wider than
most, and feels perfect in a euro pro sort of way that is hard to convey in
words. i have ridden for 20 plus years and i have enjoyed many of the
classic sadddles over the years, but the pro-link truly stands out from all
previous comers (rolls, regal, flite, etc.) i know people still like them
all, but i'll bet dollars to doughnuts that's because they have not tried a
pro-link. there is a new standard, and the pro-link is it
i suggest the XOElefantino

People are dumping their standard-equipment XO and XO gel saddles to upgrade to Flite, TransAm, ProLink, Oktavia, Body Geometry, Niagara Cyclomassage, whatever. Why, I have no idea, because the XO is an incredibly comfortable saddle for short or long hauls.
My suggestion: Go to your LBS, look in the orphan saddle bucket for a new XO, give the cashier $15, put it on your bike, and ride happily. Then take the other $60 (or $80, or $100, depending) and buy something else.
When you see someone riding an expensive saddle, smile knowingly.
