I got my Seat Concepts Seat with .5 firmer foam, and all carbon cover, last week. Had it installed by an upholstery guy Friday. I'm 6'02", 34 inseam, and 215lbs.
I too didn't like the big SC Tag so I cut it off with a razor blade... VERY CAREFULLY. I put a piece of hard plastic under it so I wouldn't cut into the seat.
I find the .5 foam very firm. I thought it might be too hard because the first time I rode my thighs were hurting. Since the first ride though I have had no discomfort and the seat seems to be settling in nicely. I chock the discomfort up to my thighs/buns being used to the stock seat.
My discomfort from the seat came from the 1 inch rise in height and my reach to the handle bars. To attempt to fix this I ordered the Motowerk bar riser and installed it. This has helped, but I may need another inch of reach added via a switch out to the ROX risers.
I already have the Motowerk footpeg lowering kit installed.
In conclusion, I feel the SC seat is an improvement over the stock one, for me. I hated the constant sliding forward and feeling that my buns were being smooshed. If I had one improvement suggestion it would be to make the seat a bit more narrow at it's midpoint between its front and main seating area (where my buns sit against the backrest).
