What saddles are you girls riding? I'm considering the Brooks women's proffesional (racing saddle). I don't really like the way Terry saddles looks. I'm race minded yet comfort minded at the same time. Something that looks nice but will be comfortable for long rides. Suggestions?

My housemate uses Terry Elia and Selle SLK. For long rides, and on the fixie, she's on other Terrys. (Yes, she does have four bikes!)
I use the regular Brooks Professional. I like it. I might try a women's professional next time, but I'm really happy with this one.

My wife bought what seems like a really nice Terry Butterfly about three our four months ago. She loves it.
(I just realized that I'm posting in the fixed forum and so you were probably talking about a saddle on a fixed bike. Hers is not.)

I'm a dumbass who can't read. You said no Terrys. Sorry.
I can't stand Terrys either, but was suckered into the Damselfly's sweet graphic, race design, and titanium rails. Got it for Xmas and although it looks fine and is hela-light, let's just say I ain't taking it on any long rides (>2 hours). The reviews I've read of it have said the same thing. It's my fixie seat and works well for around town. Oh well it's all about how you pose, eh? ;)
I also have a +10 y.o. Avocet titanium women's seat that I will use until it crumbles apart. It's been on double centuries no problemo. Next saddle will definitely be the Brooks Pro though.
