I have a B17 that I like, but it gives me too much perennial pressure if I ride for long distances. I don't like it too much for being in an aggressive position. For cruising around in an upright position or touring, I think the B17 is a great saddle though.
I recently bought a Selle Italia SLK Gel Flow and I like it. A LOT. The gel feels really good, and it has independent movement for your left and right cheeks which is good for tight maneuvering on city streets. Check it out. It's a racing saddle, but it's comfy
Last saddle I will talk about is the San Marco Rolls. That is one of the most comfy saddles I have ever rideen. Less perennial pressure than B17 and more cush than the SLK.
Here's the thing: spending 50 hours a week on ANY saddle is going to cause soreness. you're not gonna find one that is completely comfortable for that much time. You're just not.
