Hello list,

Question about Brooks saddles - I have a B17 Champion Narrow, with chrome rails, marked 79 and made of leather that's twice as thick as all other Brook saddles I have seen in the past. It appears to have had little to no use and is hard as a rock. The leather is in good shape (no cracking), but it seams impossible to make any softer. I 've tried Brooks Proofide several times but have had little results. Any advice at making this saddle/leather softer. Home remedies?

By the way Proofide has worked with all my other saddles.

Thanks for your help.
