I've only tried the Toupe and I can vouch for that, it is very comfortable indeed. I was quite shocked the first time I sat on it at just how comfortable it was.
yep its the toupe for me to its the best out of the two.
The only problem might be as you only have a wee todger it might fall into the cut out and get trapped.
So you've a big cock then TYLER
Looking at the 2, I guess I would prefer the broader and flatter Spec saddle.
I have a Spec Alias on my audax bike and have no problems with it. It's also the 3rd saddle I have tried, after a San Marco Rolles and a Fizik Pave.
But as you no doubt know, saddles are probably one of the most 'personal preference' items and the recommendations of others are not always anything to go by.
I'd get the Toupe. Best saddle I've used by a long way. As Yello suggests saddles are a very personal thing but I think some are more suited to a wider range of bums than others, and I've read very few reviews from people who don't get along with the Toupe.
Make sure you get your bum bones measured at a shop first though (you sit on a little gel pad) as they come in 2 different widths and you obviously don't want the wrong one. And don't guess either, my arse is massive but I surprisingly needed the narrowest of the two.
Agree with all of the comments on the Toupe. Its the only non Brooks saddle I own (and I've tried a few!!!) and is up there with my old faithful B17
Toupe. No question.
Another vote for the Toupe
p.s don't worry Yenrod, Ive got a small cock and it's never got stuck on purpose
I'll give it a miss then

I like the toupe too, never tried the other saddle.
Toupe. Most comfortable saddle I have ever had.
Toupe - you'll be daft not to
