i had to try tons of saddles and i think i'm pretty close to where i need to be. demo saddles, where you get to try several saddle shapes out for a limited duration is what i would do if i had to search for a new saddle. i'm inbetween a Fizik Antares 00 and a Tune Speed Needle. i can ride both comfortably for up to 65 miles. the Antares is good for beyond that for centuries.

Another option, albeit an expensive one is to order a few different saddles to try out. Could be the only option when you don't have a decent LBS...
