Boston Bill is blasphemy. It simply isn't required. Leather should need to be exposed to water. It damages it. This will result in shorter life. Just get used to the idea that if it doesn't fit to begin with, it doesn't work for you. No one saddle model, type, or brand is the best choice for everyone.

For crying out loud. Soak it in water five times. Sheesh. Sounds like the guy that used to ride in RAAM (Lon Halderman maybe?), he'd soak Leather saddles in water too. Then he also replaced them after like 5,000 miles.
