Ok then, I was talking to a chap today at work about different types of brooks saddles and before I made phone calls or emails to the definitive knowledges on the subject I thought I would ask if you know the difference. I learnt that the team pro and swift were separated by a riders weight difference, the swift preferring a sub 12 1/2 stone rider and the team liking a heavier rider hence the deeper sides, plus the swift will break in easier too. Which begs the question, where does the swallow come into this? I think this is interesting and makes saddle choice more than cosmetic.

The Swallow is the easiest to break... it is very comfortable compared to the Swift, which is very rigid.
My Team PRO broke easy, maybe because I used it during a wet Paris-Roubaix in 2010...
I like them all and I think the Team PRO is the best value for money... in the case of the swallow I am not really sure what the extra is paying for
