I currently like my Selle SMP Strike Extra. Retail is $110, or something like that, at Performance Bike. I think I paid $80-90 during a sale. It's heavy (400g) but works well. I got measured for a Specialized Toupe Gel, which many people rave about, and thought it was the worst saddle I've ever ridden. After one 45mi ride, it went back to the store and I'm still recovering from the saddle sore it gave me. Selle San Marco Aspide Gelaround was similarly terrible. I have a WTB Speed V ProGel on my MTB/commuter bike. It's OK for rides up to about 20mi, but annoying on longer rides. Serfas Rx is too wide, soft and squishy. Chafing is a problem on any ride over about 10mi.
