I used the Force AM rear and Wild AM front this summer on my Commencal Meta AM V4.2 and loved them...as long as they held air. I flatted the Force more than any tire before or since - and that was tubeless. The few times I set them up with tubes last minutes before flatting. I weigh 145 and am not sure hard on wheels. That being said, the Island has a lot of sharp rocks.
I went back to Maxxis but would be really interested to try the Enduro version. The grip, weight and quick-rolling character of the AMs was second to none. They transformed my bike...as long as they held air.
I also want the Satori to be a 111 DL replacement with a playful character but it sounds like it was lacking in stability. If I understand you correctly, the STA makes a bike with two personalities: an uphill ripper and a scary AF descender. Is there any fun in there? The new Kona video seems to hint it can be thrown around easily. If not in its stock incarnation, what about with a taller fork?
