So I was thinking maybe the newer Toupé or Romin would do the trick, is there a model with a bit more of padding than the older-first ones? Was also looking into the Fizik Arione-, Aliante and Antares Versus saddles, as they have some extra padding and a groove but some reckon that the padding is too soft and therefore will squeeze in between the legs as this is also a zone I get a lot of numbness. Any hints? Right now I'm riding on a Fizik Vesta (ladies)-saddle

Yes you're right it's difficult to ask for an advice as we all are different, I just don't have the possibility to get into a demo program where I live as you suggest, so I may be buying 2 saddles that come close to my previous ones. I'm just tired of using ugly chunky saddles as I'm sure there's one out there that doesn't look ugly and isn't an anker.
I belong to the people who rather have a bit a heavier saddle but be comfortable on longer rides which makes more than up to the little weight gaining, but I think there should be a saddle in the 200-isch gram zone that should do the trick.
I noticed that for my piercy sit bones the best saddle is one with a bit of extra padding that is not soft or else it won't work, like gel is too soft, needs to be sort of a harder foam where my bones can stick into it and stay there
For me personally I have found comfort on three relatively lightweight saddles. The original Selle Italia Flite shape, the Fizik Aliante Carbon, and the Prologo Scratch Pro. These seem to fit me well and enough shell down the side to prevent the saddle from digging into my bottom.

SMP makes several shapes with differing amounts of padding for each shape. Worth a shot.

As stated above, the newer Spec saddles, in general, have more padding than their predecessor models.
