My prolink genuine gel with composite rails doesn't let any blood get to the boys, (or it makes me go numb), so I need a new seat. Going to try out some new ones at my LBS this week, need a good starting point. I know saddles are very individualistic, but it can't hurt to get some opinions.
I prefer a flatter saddle by the way. Thanks for the help.nicholasdunford

The Flite Gel's always been good to me...The Walrus

...and the SDG BelAir never seemed to cause me any problems. I think my favorites, though, were the old Vetta TriShock models--still use 'em on my 'cross bikes.

My pet hates would be anything from WTB.

At least the best of five or so different models that I've tried.
One which hasn't gotten any ink, but I like it.pitt83

San Marco Era. No one else has piped up about it, but I love it. I tried and returned a few until this one. It is flat, has a small, but significant enough split w/o being ridiculous (Specialized body geometry wasn't comfortable for me).

My LBS would let me return anything I bought, even if they had ordered it (non-stocked item). Beat the mail order buy and return merry-go-round. IMO: Unless you already know what you want or it's cheap enough to get stuck with if you don't like it, mail order is dicey for this type of buy.

C'mon-you can either have comfort or light weight, but not both.
