Anyone have any insight as to which of these similarly priced and styled seats I will enjoy more? Bent the rails of my velo saddle and figure i'll try something new.

I can't really compare the 2 since I haven't sat on the Origin8, but I do know that I love my Charge Spoon.
Saddles are all a personal thing, no one will be able to tell you which will work better. No matter what they say. Lots of people recomend brooks saddles as the end all most comfortable saddle, but they dont fit me, or lots of others. You just have to go out and try some differnet ones till you can narrow down the shape and size that fits you.

I've actually owned both and had them on the same bike. Got rid of the Origin-8 in favor of the Charge. The Origin-8 is ridiculously narrow, and the shape is uncomfortable because of the sharp edges, as well as just being a rebadged Velo seat (branded on the bottom). The Charge is much nicer, a tad wider, all smooth with no sharp edges, etc...
