advice on finding saddle nirvanaDaveG

After 2 seasons I am no longer finding my Specialized Body Geom Comp seat as comfortable as I did initially. I think the shape is OK; the issue is that it now feels too soft and squishy. Anyhow, I am on a quest to find my new favorite saddle. I am looking for some advice on how to quickly narrow in on a seat I like without spending a fortune or an inordinate amount of time testing. I bought a Max Flite Trans Am to try and have a Flite Gel coming to try out. I plan to sell any saddles I don't like to recoup some costs. What advice do others have on picking likely saddle candidates? What's a reasonable amount of miles/time to try out a saddle? I am not really looking for specific saddle recommendations, but rather a methodology.
