The nice thing about Gripton is it doesn't harden as much as many compounds in the cold. It's also 'stickier' on the trail then a squeeze test would suggest.  I've ridden the 27x2.6" Slaughter and it's an awesome tire.  SE4 is a more all around tire. It doesn't punish you on a long trail bike ride the way a TRS or Butcher can but it still offers really good climbing and braking traction.  I really like the 2.6" Team Issue out back with a more square tire \(big side lugs\) up front. I have no qualms about mix-matching brands so LG1r / SE4 has been a common combo for me lately.
