Yes, the standard brooks professional has been dropped from the brooks website, as tom martin just indicated. The team pro is still available, and it is a close substitute.

Perhaps the profit margins or the sales of the regular brooks professional were not enough for selle italia to keep the saddle in the lineup ?? Or is brooks now going to offer only pre-softened saddles in order to make the brand more popular to first-time buyers ??

I'd like to know exactly why this model was dropped.
