Has anyone tried a tri saddle on a road bike, i'm considering a Fizik Mistica. I'm going long this year but cant afford a tri bike but looking to improve comfort. I ride comfortably on clip on aerobars. has anyone else tried this?

Yep, I use an ISM PL1.1 on my road bike. Same saddle as on my tri bike. For me it is definitely more comfortable than any of the standard saddles I've tried especially when down on the drops. Very comfy also when riding up on the hoods.

Looks to be similar to the Mistica in having the snub nose.

There's no reason why not.  After all, it's your position and set up of your contact points that is the important thing.   saddle height and position relative to the bars is the important thing.  just remember that adding tri bars to a road bike moves your contact points forward.
