LePera turned out to be very unpleasant.
Trying this Sully. Ride report later.

I think that is key. To a novice, a Corbin for example would seem way too hard. But after riding with one vs stock for many many many miles, I can tell you that soft doesn't work and i'll take the "hard" Corbin over anything else I've tried.

Gel pads are OK, but have a limit and then all of a sudden its utter pain.

I don't know much about the Mustangs, but everyone I know who does long-distance riding uses Corbin or Mustang. And perhaps an airhawk pad for trips that are several days.
