I mostly sit solidly in the saddle and I am not exactly a slowpoke.

Do you? How do you measure that? What is the percentage of your
weight you “solidly” put on the saddle?

Whatever of it isn't going into the pedal strokes.

Yeah, that’s kinda my point. There’s likely more going into the pedals
than you realize. I have a seat that is very comfortable for my
regular rides, but it too can be a bit of a pain if I just *sit* on
when I go for a ride with my slowpoke friends. Especially if the road
isn’t in great condition.

For short term comfort getting a saddle that doesn't rub on the inside of your thighs in any position forward or back is the most important.

For longer term the back of the saddle has to properly cradle your sit-bones as well.

If you have too long a position on the bike your lower back will hurt and in this position you can sometimes drag the inside of your thighs against the wider area of the saddle.
