Saddles are one of those things that in my experience you need to experiment with. I'd have given up cycling if I didn't change the saddle on my road bike, but now that I have, I itch to ride it whenever I can. Same goes for my mountain bike.
Different saddles fit people differently - what works for you may not work for me, and the converse is likely true as well. So, I say give it a go - worst case, it is less comfortable and you swap them back until you find another one to test. Manufacturers try to fit the saddle to the "average" of who they think will be buying the bike; for my dad that meant a wide padded saddle, and it works for him and his riding style. For me, well, he thinks the saddle I use is more of a masochistic option than anything else, but it works for me and the way I ride.
