Saddle fit idea

I've gone through about six various saddles trying to find one that I really like. Assuming I am not alone in this rather expensive conundrum I have an idea and just want to put it out and see if it is viable. Why not collect a huge assortment of various saddles, hopefully by people initially sending them in, and whoever wants to try them pays shipping to get the assortment? When he/she takes one they like they can either replace it or just donate their old one adding it to the box and ship it to whomever next requests this "library' of saddles. I figure there has to be quite an assortment of possibilities and the shipping could pretty expensive but I know i have at least 300 bucks wasted on saddles that just don't cut it.

Just a thought....

I think a program like that already exists on this board. I recall someone setting something up for members a few years back.
