I don’t mind the Rekon as a rear tire but I’ll choose a Laughter or Schwalbe Rock Razor every day. They’re more rim width sensitive. With sag (sitting on the bike) you don’t want the side knobs to touch the ground. But with the right profile I love how they roll along fast and then grip hard when leaned over.  On my El Roy I run a Big Betty out back and I’m definitely fluent in the fast versus grip conversation for the back of hardtails. On the \#1FG though I’ve gone back and forth a lot and fast is the (current) winner.
