Hope It Gets Better! It Doesn’t - It's Gotten Worse!

Update: 24 June 19. This chair is still incredibly uncomfortable. I have a very thick cushion on top, yet the firmness of this chair still comes through. I has absolutely not give what-so-ever! I have never sat in such an uncomfortable chair. I'll try to keep using it for one year and then I'm done. I can't go much longer with my tail-bone aching every day. There are much, much cheaper chairs out there that I could/should/will buy that will give me much greater comfort. This is a terrible chair and continues to be a terrible chair!
Update: 9 Feb 18. I still hate this chair! It is STILL as hard as a rock and has not changed any from the first time I sat in it. NOW it's developed a very loud and annoying creaking everytime I move. I'm not sure what the problem is but this chair is noisy. Just barely turning sideways makes a lot of racket. Just one more thing to go wrong with this chair. I'll still need to use it because I can't afford to replace such an expensive chair with something else, and believe me, I will eventually replace this chair with anything else. Don't buy this chair unless you want to sit on concrete and hear screeching noise every time you move!
Update: 11 Dec 18. Three months with this chair and I HATE it! The seat is still so hard I think I dread every day I have to sit in it! I am retired so I sut in front of my home computer a lot, but this chair isn’t comfortable after an hour or less and then I have to stand up. I don’t understand making a seat so dang hard. I sank too much money into this thing so I guess I’m stuck with it and that’s a pain too! Anybody who things it gets softer with use is going to be disappointed and sore!
Update: 19 Oct 18. I have had this chair for exactly one month. I am 5' 11 and 290 lbs. This chair was designed for guys like me and even bigger guys. It does fit me very well. My head come right up to the headrest pillow giving me great support. The built in lumbar is just perfect. I can adjust it to feel great as necessary each day if I want. Sometimes I want a real straight sitting, other times I don't want the push in my back. The nob makes it easy to adjust. Same with the height and rocking adjustment paddles. Usually, once these are set for you size, they won't move again.
Initial Review: Putting together the chair was relatively painless although they could do a better job of explaining where the bolts actually come from. One arm of the chair was detached, but the bolts were in the chair. We some how got the chair bottom bolts mixed up with the chair arm bolts, but eventually figured it out. It took my wife and I about an hour to put together and we're both in our 70's.
Now about the comfort. After one month, I can only tolerate this chair for about four hours or less. The seat is extremely hard and I mean hard. My backside is very tender after sitting in this chair for more than four hours at a time. Yeah, that's a long time to sit any where, but the chair is in my study in front of my iMac and my TV. I'm either coding something, playing a game or watching football and don't pay much attention to the time, but when I do get up, I can feel the soreness in my tail-bone. It isn't pleasant. I did ask Noble Chairs about the hardness of the seat and they said it would lessen over time. That may be true, but after one month it certainly isn't my favorite chair to sit in, but it's the only one I have for now, so I guess I'll keep trying to break it in. Still, if you're looking for a big and tall chair that is comfortable at the start, look elsewhere. This one is like sitting on a concrete wall all day!
P.S. I almost forgot to mention that if you sit in the chair in blue jeans, don't plan on moving around. It feels like your jeans are stuck to the seat and you can't move or wiggle at all. Some might like this, but it's hard to move to a more comfortable position since you have to stand completely up to move in this chair. I don't know about other pant material since all I ever wear is blue jeans.
