My SMP has solved the issue of comfort, but it doesn't allow me to position myself like I'd like. I have to go nose up for a flatter sitting area, but this results in a big leather spire pressed into my nuts when I want to get low. I also can't scoot forward. Nose down solves this problem, but then I can't really sit on the flat surface my butt prefers when I sit back up.

Between the SLR Superflow and the Mantra, what have WW's experienced?

Not tried an SLR... but the Mantra was puhfect for my behind. Broke it after a while, but still looking for a deal on one... great seat for mah buttocks.

I preferred the Selle San Marco Mantra but both were good seats. Never tried an SMP though.

If you have it narrowed down to these two, wouldn't it be easier to just buy both and return the one you liked least?

Returns aren't always possible if nothing is wrong with the saddle. Anyhow, I've ruled out the Mantra. The only dilemma I have now is 130 or 145mm in width. My sit bones measure between 105 and 110mm on the silly shop tools, so I suspect the former.
