Fizik Saddle Question

My CAAD9 came fitted with a Fizi:k Pave CX Sport saddle. I didn't give it much chance to be fair, but I quickly replaced it with my Charge Spoon as it felt a bit hard. The Charge Spoon feels as if it might be going a bit saggy and I'm quite tempted by an Arione. Given I found the CX Sport a bit hard, is the Arione likely to be the same? Will the extra money get me a superior saddle?

Turn the corner, rub my eyes and hope the world will last...

    I'm running both the Pave sport and the Arione; in my opinion the Pave Sport is quite comfortable and in terms of padding is (much) softer then the Arione. On the other hand, the Arione provides better support and seems to flex in all the right places.

    If I were in your seat I'd give the Pave another go.... I'm on my second actually, but it's 'horses for courses' as everybody will tell you. The Pave probably needs time to break in though,,,
