I might have mentioned it in that thread (LOL), but I ride a hardtail and I really love the Panaracer Fire XC Pros. I ride with pressure in the low 30's and they grip like crazy and really resist  pinch flats.

I recently switched to the Maxxis Ignightors.  So far they are great!!  A huge improvement over the old hutchinsons.  I run mine at 35psi and they seem to roll pretty fast.  The only down side is I have heard they wear pretty quick,  But for all that traction it just may be worth it.
