Strengths:    Relieves pressure on nerves in groin.
No numbness in groin area.

Weaknesses:    Loss of directional stability.
Lack of nose on seat means material of shorts is free to move, creating a sandpaper effect with the nether regions - rubbing skin raw.

Bottom Line:   
I've been using my ISM Sport saddle for commuting 40 miles round trip to work every day, 5 days a week. It has relieved the pressure on the nerves between my legs, so I experience no numbness. However, with no nose on the saddle, the loss of that pressure has resulted in the clothing material acting as a weak but effective sandpaper on my nether regions, rubbing them raw almost to the point of drawing blood. I'm still working on that problem. I've tried tighter shorts, a jockstrap to reduce movement and chamois butter to no avail. I often ride freehand, whether to give my back a break or to adjust my gear as I ride. With this saddle, however, I can't as I've lost some directional stability.
