do you shuttle or climb on the Reign? that's a lot of heavy tire! the youngest gun (also weighs a buck 50 at most) in our riding group has DH tires on his Reign and it doesn't slow him down to the top that's for sure. i gather you find it worth the trade off for how you want to ride?
occasional shuttle (few times a year), park once or twice a week in evenings, mostly climb, I hate fixing flat tires. I don't think I've flatted once in the past 3+ seasons on that bike, including a couple weeks of trans provence and finale, among a lot of other extremely rocky stuff. Maybe it's overkill, but the people who give me grief about heavy tires are usually the ones I'm waiting for to fix flats.
