Recommendations on a good road bike saddle?

Any thoughts? I was using a shitty Oval Concepts saddle that I stole from my wife's old POS Kestral, but she stole it back and sold it on Ebay. I need something that is at least mildly more comfortable. Don't care if it's used either. Trying to keep it under $100.

    I like my Specialized Romin. Another dude I ride with likes his. So that's 2 votes.

    Thanks guys. Probably give the Romin a try. Two votes, right price point, looks decent!

    Fizik arione. Perfection for me. They wear pretty well. Not brooks, but a used one will still last you years.

    2 million thumbs up for my Specialized Power (155mm). I tried a gagillion till this one. I'm sure it's so individual though, right?

    I’m with @Tad_Machrowicz the specialized power in a 155 is my saddle of choice. It was the solution to the puzzle that was my nether regions.

    My recommendation is also the specialized power. It's pretty nice. I can't remember what version I have but it's in 143mm. I have it on my road bike.

    This is super random, but I took the Specialized seat that came with my husband's Shiv and it's my fucking favorite, refuse to go to anything else. so.

    I use a Cobb JOF 55 on my road bike. Tried it on the tri bike but didn’t like it but on the road bike it’s comfortable
    You can send a video clip of yourself riding to Cobb and they will recommend a saddle and make adjustment recommendations based on your video.
