Just to clarify, is the new toupe pro an all together different shape than the 2012 s-works and the standard toupe variations? At least judging by the pictures on the website the s-works appears to have a much larger cutout, but the 2013 pro appears to have a more refined nose shape, wing shape, and got rid of those stupid plastic tabs.

I'm riding a romin evo 143 test saddle now, and it's alright when I'm in the "pocket" but a too much padding and the where the nose turns down makes it unrideably hard when I scoot forward and rotate my hips

The new pro has a similar shell and design to the 2012 S-Works. Basically, It has the more curved wings as opposed to the old flat ones that used to dig into lots of people's thighs. It does away with the plastic bits, widens the nose, and extends the channel almost all the way to the nose. In that regard it is just like the 2012 S-Works. The hull is full carbon and very stiff like the Romin and S-Works. It is awesome.

Based on your comments and my experiences with all Speci saddles you would like this Toupe. The rear is like a Romin without a kicktail and no front to back curvature. It also is minimally branded and looks sharp.
