I've not tried the SMP, but want to. I too am testing the Romin (Pro version) out. So far so good. I use ISM Adamo saddles which I really love, but find them very heavy and seriously ugly. I'll be doing a 3.5 - 4 hour ride on the Romin saddle tomorrow to make sure all is well before I switch.

FWIW, I was told I needed the 143 wide version, but I tested that size and the 155 and like the 155 WAY more.

For those of you who have tried this saddle, do you have any experience with the SMP line? I'd love to hear your feedback in comparing the two.

I'm having a terrible time finding a saddle that works for me. I've been trying an SMP strike, but it's a touch to narrow for my sit bones. I then tried the next wider version of the SMP and it seems too wide. My seach continues...

I am riding the Romin Pro with Carbon Rails. The size is 155. I was told to get the 143 wide b/c I measured closer to needing a 138, but after trying the 143 and 155, the 155 fit me WAY better.

I've now done 11 hours in the saddle (with 2 3+ hour rides) and absolutely love it.

Which model of the Romin are you all loving? The Specialized website lists five models ranging in price from $80 - $150.
