Strengths:    Felt slippery and hard the first 20 miles. Then hard for the next 30, or so. After about 50 miles everything is pure happiness! I started noticing shock absorption superior to all others I have tried. It just works with the rider's movements and shape. Leather is thick, if it gets scratched, it looks like a little dye would fix it. Some saddles get scratched, and they look terrible.

Weaknesses:    I'll have to be careful in wet weather. Wish it was lighter.

Bottom Line:   
I could have saved hundreds by trying Brooks first.
