I have the Regal on one bike, the Rolls on another. They are both good saddles, wide with lots of contact. I started out with a Turbomatic Ti nearly 20 years ago, then moved on to the old-style Flites. The problem with the Flites is that they would start to sag and I would get uncomfortable on them. So, I was replacing them every 6-12 months. I tried many other saddles with moderate success, but always came back to the Flite. Then last year I started using the Regal on one bike, and dusted off a Rolls that I had buried in a box and put it on another bike. Now I can say I will probably only ride these two saddles. Yes, they are ~300 grams with Ti rails, but they are supportive, comfortable and do not break down easily.

The Regal is definitely a "firm" saddle, and is also a little wider in the nose than most. It is slightly concave from tip to tail, I have mine set very slightly nose up using a level across the top.
