Saddelco Flow Saddle

Has anyone ridden and purchased one of these saddles? They're the ones with the tensioned mesh top like a recumbent seat.

Bump, I'm also interested to hear any reviews. They look like a modern version of a Brooks saddle, using stretched mesh fabric in lieu of leather. Could work well, breath better than leather and may be more weather resistant (probably less UV resistant) I wonder if there would be a "break-in" needed for these?

Greg: I checked their site and the saddle width is a little less than my B17, length is the same, so on paper they look good... can't tell about the saddle edge, which is a problem site for me, as saddles tend to dig into my hamstring and cause problems. Thats another thing the B17 doesn't do.
