I like the shape but looks like a cheese grater for your knicks! ;)

144 grams is really a lot for a spider web design like that. what is it made of?

I used a regal for ages. Then a Regale last year. I've toyed around with a Prologo scratch HWD for abit as well. After an injury last year, I tried an SMP dynamic and couldn't imagine going back to anything else. The SMP saddles take some time to get used to. However, once you put up with the break in period and finalize your position, you won't feel abit of underside soreness.

After several k miles of denial, I switched from the Romin EVO Expert 143 to a Toupe Expert 143. Two months and two centuries later, all seems pretty good. Will try the 130 for the theoretical last %.

I'm currently using the traditional Selle San Marco Regal, steel rails etc which feels perfect...can anyone advise if the shape & fit of the Regale is the same or differs from the older saddle?

Chinese replica of the SSM Aspide Superleggera.
Not only 14 to 15 grams lighter than the original but also around 340 bucks cheaper :D :D
Happy on short rides .Need to test it on longer rides though.

Fizik Antares Braided 152g claimed and Selle Slr Carbonio at 126g

The Fizik is more comfortable but not a huge difference.
