I felt a little like I was exploiting B&L's generous saddle exchange program, and the different managers usually smirked when they saw "that saddle exchanging dude" coming back for a fresh one, but they never gave me any guff and I was careful to return the saddles with no marks at all on the rails, and re-zip-tied to their packaging.

Take your time and don't rush. I found some that were great, and I was tempted to simply stick with them; but why settle for a saddle that merely feels great if you can try out one that's even better?
Were you happy with the Brooks? Mine is great, just looks rediculous on my bike. What saddle did you end up with? Do you have to agree to eventually buy one of their seats in order to try them out?
