Fizik Arione on the second bike.
Happy with both.
Although the most comfortable ever for my behind was, is and will forever be a San Marco Rolls. Which unfortunately weighs about 12kgs...

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
Certainly believe you need to try out a saddle for a long ride before you can make a decision.

I have a Concor on all of my bikes and am currently sporting one of the rare-ish Bontrager Concors on my road bike. I have been afraid to try one of the new ones as they look a bit wide.
If I was forced to switch, I had some success on one of the new Turbomatics.
Before that I used to be a Selle italia fan, as I rode the turbomatic, flite and various versions of the slr.
TSN 109...great fit and comfy for up to 5 hours.
TSN 119...perhaps a little wide in the hip for me. Better for most people, I hear.
SLR 135 (142 really...as they all are). The benchmark for all-round duty. Only OK for me. TSN 109 is better once I am saddle-fit. SLR has a shade more padding for when you are starting out.
Becker carbon (MTB)...reasonable but too early to tell as I don't ride the MTB much. 64g variant is a pain to install (no rails).
ADAMO (ISM) Race...on the t.t., once you get used to these (not pleasant) they allow a nose-down position better than anything else I've tried but I want a DASH TRI-7 for the T.T.
The lightweight ones? (dash M4 and M2Racer)....yet to find out
Edit: 2015: darn near won the best South Island series (got second in age
-group)..woo hoo Racy Theremery is back!!

There are a lot of options in the 90-120 gram range. As with any item like this, I question its overall quality, durability, etc. Thoughts?

I lean my bike up against too many walls to splash for the carbon shell version
I have a Stratos at home that I was going to bin until I read this!!!! The padding's glue had let go from the shell and I have re glued it (as best I could without removing the leather as I am not confident I'll be able to put it back on). I am yet to try it out but have a strong feeling the padding will move again. If it does, it will get the same 'skinning' procedure as yours. Thanks for the idea
