Comfortable saddle?

I've dusted off my old Scott Comp Racing ('98 model I think), had it serviced and I've started using it again. The saddle is rock hard, and I'm not getting on with it. Can anyone recommend a decent comfortable alternative? I use padded shorts, but that is not enough!

    Urghhh.. The usuall 2 candidates;

    Charge Spoon (my choice)
    SG Bel Air

    Buy either.If you dont like them, they will generally sell for nearly full price again to someone. They are that popular.

    Charge spoon here, cro-mo rail option (only pence dearer than base but worth the weight saving!)

    I recently had to buy a new saddle after my old and well loved SDG Bel Air split at the stitching.

    I was a bit short of cash so bought the cheapest half decent saddle I could find On-One Big Nose Saddle £15 delivered. Quite by accident I think I might have discovered the comfiest saddle I have ever plonked my backside on.
