I've heard good things about the terry liberator and it is in you're price range. It has a cut-out too. Worth checking out.

Although the selle royale fits me perfectly what is it that makes say Selle Italia cost so much compared to Selle Royale. Is there a quality difference or just a pathetic markup

Isnt Selle Royal used on the cheap s**t bikes or do they make higher end products as well.

I got a Serfas Full-Suspension saddle on Ebay for $10. Gel seat, cutaway and eleven springs make it a comfy ride and it also would make a fine anchor as well. My sore-bottomed friends always complained about the medieval Coda seat when they rode my MTB, so I slapped it on. Everyone's nads and butts are fine now.
