Brooks B66 Alternative?

Can you guys recommend another brand that sells something similar to the Brooks B66 saddle? The price is just off the wall!

Yes sorry, leather isn't really a thing to me.

Gyes is an alternative, but dont know anybody that has one to comment about longevity and comfort.
Ebay has a leather saddle for about $45 ($29.99 + $15 shipping in brown or tan) that looks interesting and comes with triple springs, front spring can be removed if you only want the rear sprung. Again no one knows about the quality but I may buy one to replace a really wornout saddle.
IMHO, most leather saddles have similar frame and rail construction, so it comes down to the quality of the leather.

I also found Singleworks saddles on Amazon, not as wide though.
