Corbin vs. Spencer's Seat

Find myself in the lovely circumstance of trading my old stock seat for a Corbin seat in need of some TLC. Also have another stock seat en route to Spencer's for an upgrade. Will do a comparison and let you know what's what.

First impression of the Corbin is that it does indeed set you up comfortably but now makes me farther away from the bars. I have to lean/stretch a little and my back hurt after a 15 min ride

The resultant seat height is much higher with the Corbin, as the seating area is higher and more dense so squishes down way less.
And because the seat doesn't make you slide forward, you end up being not so much further back, and instead, where you actually first sat down on it.

Maybe a bar change will solve it for you.
Be it a change in height, reach, or both.
