Saddle for long-haul?

Yes, another saddle question from a noobie. And yes I did a search on the most comfortable saddle and get the usual Fizik arione, Specialized toupe, Selle Italia Flite, and Various other Selle italia recommendation. But I'm still wondering what would be most comfortable for say a century ride? These same saddle applies?

Basically I'm asking because I recently completed a metric century (my longest ride todate). My legs are abit sore and I did develop a cram toward the end but I could take it easy and it was fine. My hands are a little sore, but not bad at all. The most problem I have with is my seat. It's just sore. That seems to be more of the limiting factor than anything else for long ride.

So, looking for some recommendation. And yes, I realized every butt is different. However, I couldn't possibly really test out all the saddle selection out there. So I'm looking for some guidelines that would increase the chances that my next saddle purchase that it'll be my last.
