Brooks Swift vs Colt?

I already own a Brooks Colt and am thinking of breaking in another Brooks saddle, what are the differences between the two? Brooks Colt vs. Brooks Swift

I found an article that shows pictures of the Colt (discontinued) vs. the Pro, Swallow and Swift. They all look different. It doesn’t show the B17 but that one may also be a close match to the Colt. I think the Swift is desired if a more race position is used vs. a more upright riding position, but saddle choices are subjective.
