Default comfort poll?

I would like this to be a poll but do not know how to make it one.
So it will have to be just a question.

Which of the following seats do you feel is the best for long hours comfort ?

Saddleman Explorer Special
Saddleman Renegade
Corbin Close solo
Mustang wide solo
LePera Sorrento

I have the Mustang wide solo and P pad on my bike, I have not tried any of the others. I can say that the Mustang seat is awesome and never makes me think about my arse.

I tried the saddleman explorer gel/mustang vintage wide/lepera barebones(non gel) and the mustang regal duke. I kept the regal duke in the end for a mixture of comfort and looks. Almost as comfy as the vintage, but a thinner profile. The saddleman got buzzy after 200 miles or so, and kinda sweaty.

Mustang.....only studded.......otherwise is the same. Have not tried the others. Mustang was my first shoot at another seat other than the stock. I love it. Like I've said before......this seat will take me further than I want to go.

Aside from the crappy HD pillow look touring seat, my other 2 are mustang, so that is all I can comment on. I have the vintage wide super touring for the long days and rides with my wife(she really wants the Trunk off a EG), and a fastback for the shorter days.

With the vintage wide I can ride all day and be eager for more. The fastback is about a 150-200 mile before the booty starts getting sore.

Sort of a funny poll (I find some humor). It's like asking: Which is the most comfortable car for long rides?

Ford Pinto
Chevy Vega
AMC Pacer
Cadillac Coupe DeVille
Toyota Tercel

The Wide Mustang (either solo or 2-up) has been the popular choice for long distance work for a long long time.
