Test rode Christmas present today

A Brooks b67
Wife an kids chipped in for it
Test fitted for it on friday at a semi L.B.S.
Was not what I expected When i first handled it
(Hard as a rock)
but it spreads the weight out and is more comfortable than the other saddles I tried
out on there fit stand set up
Already applied a good coat of proofide
Put 10 miles on it today but seems as tho I will need a lot more miles to break it in

I had a sprung Flyer. I liked the idea of it way more than I ever liked the saddle....
