Indeed they are, but they are the "Plus" iteration because of the depressed central channel that the normal Scratch Pro TR doesn't have.

thats correct the dea has same groove but this is more than and is longer than and is not a normal scratch. in the article it said they have been developing these saddles with mr bossen hargen himself as you can see the top pic was from the last tour so ive been waiting a wile an still no sign of a release date for the uk.

Interestingly the shell looks the same as the 143 TR I have. Did you have the regular Scratch before this? It's a nice saddle apart from the numbness I get after an hour or 2. I've been using a Cobb recently to alleviate this.

No this is my first prologo if it feels as good as it looks then I should be on to a winner.
Was using a selle Italia slr which is 130mm and very flat with no round edges which started in become a bit of a issue Im getting pins an needles in my left foot and a num groin after 2 1/2 hours thougt about a saddle with a cutout would help just dont like the look but ive put on 8 kg since i last rode for that long so changed shape abit. gona have to go back to fitter I think also I've used a fizik antares carbon rail which started to wear quite quickly and creeks have to say I was disappointed. Was thinking about the scratch tr hopefully this will get rid of my problems.

I got rid of my Scratch TR because it didn't have a relief channel.
It felt perfect at the backend tho. Might have to invest in one of these.
Where did you get it?

Nice looking saddle, may have to check them out myself.

What's a few grams to keep the boys happy.

So, does the 'Plus' denote extra padding/comfort? And what does 'TR' stand for?

TR is Team Replica. It usually has different graphics and denser padding.
