 I have a wetscream(front) swampthing(rear)doesn't get used much cos 95%of the time you just don't need this amount of grip, but when I do use them its brilliant, can still ride when even the top soil is sliding away of its own accord. They still track fine when everyone else I have been riding with has been going sideways continuously. On the downside they do have a very high rolling resistance but too be honest if your using them for what they're intended for you're really not going to notice much. I just missed my lift and ended up cycling ten miles home on them and even though I have the super tacky compound tire, there was no noticeable wear

 rips like a biatch... sometimes too much if its not wet enough. You can totally feel the difference especially when you're in deep mud, reduces wheel spin and gives you more control

 when the going gets wet, this tyre is unbeatable, hooks up so well, the only thing is that the rolling resistance is quite high
