WTB Verdict & Judge is a terrific combo - Cam wrote a great review about it [here](https://nsmb.com/articles/wtb-verdict-29-x-25-front-tire-reviewed-w-judge-rear/). The only front tire I've ever had that inspires as much confidence to look at as the Verdict is the Magic Mary - it's a high-volume tire with savage, loam-eating side knobs that make you want to lean it over and dig your way through a turn. Braking is very good and sidewall support is solid - but it should be since it's not a light tire. Comparably slow while pedaling to these Butchers, but...I just don't care. Give me a heavy bike with slow tires and a few extra minutes to get to the top, so I can be that much happier on the way down. Assegai front, DHR II rear; Verdict & Judge or Butcher: any of those combinations would make me equally happy with few variances in performance or comfort, so it would generally come down to price for me if buying tires for an aggressive trail bike.
