Don't worry, I interpreted it the same way you did.

The new 2013 Toupe. Awesome. got it from Thisisatest's shop.

The new model has a grippier/nicer cover, the wings are more contoured and don't hit your things, the shell is full carbon and normal stiffness, no ugly plastic bits, and the channel runs front to back with a wider nose. Perfect.

I've been using a Selle Italia Thoork Team Edition for the last few years but i couple of crashes have left it looking pretty sorry for itself - It's no longer made and i know i could probably find one for sale somewhere but was wondering if anyone has moved across to the SLR - Any major differences? Or if there is something similar still on the market today.

Finally gone back to my 10 year old San Marco Regal again...Fizik carbon saddles just don't last or feel as good...

Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio and Prologo c130 (even though it has absolutely no flex whatsoever - totally unsophisticated and not really that light- its comfy nonetheless) And I like the way it looks.

Prologo Scratch Pro
Fizik Antares

Prologo gets the most use. After I went numb around mile 30 of a 40 mile ride on the Antares, I haven't used it since. Shopping around for a new saddle. Trying to find a used Toupe 143, Romin 143 and Superflow 145 at a good price to spend some time on.

Yeah THS, love the Speshy BG saddles. As long as you know your sit bone width and get that size you are golden. Sadly for a thinner guy I'm mid 150s. So I'm limited. I can ride all my specialized saddles with no issue.
