Anyone use the Flite XP TransAm saddle? no reviews on itMVN

I'm thinking of getting a Flite XP TransAm from my lbs. It has titanium rails, is wider, plus a little extra padding than the Flite. Selle Italia stopped making it for about a year, then brought it back last year. The lbs owner says it's his favorite so he bought two. He said he'd sell me his spare and get himself another one. The reason is, I have recurrent epidydimitis and he thinks this saddle may help. I have a Koobi Silver right now and it seems fine (although I do experience numbness on rare occasions), but I'm wondering what I may be missing. You know, is this the "perfect" saddle, that kind of thing. Also, I can't find the XP for sale anywhere on the web. Anybody have any experience with it? Or any of the new Max Flite GelFlow TransAm's? Thanks.
Any saddle is ok as long as it's not on a BANKRUPT Cannondale!!!philthy underwear

but I've got a flite gelflow transam on my road bike (love it - an A) and a max flight transam on my mtbr (ok - a B or B+). The first one just fits better - a little narrower. The second has some built in shock absorbing which isn't that noticable. I actually preferred the non Gel Max Flight Transam I used to have on my mountain bike.

There's also prolink versions of the gel cutout design. Not sure what that is though. Selle's marketing dept must be nuts.
