29" Tubeless Rear Tire Recommendations

Looking for recommendations on a good all around 29" tubeless rear tire.  Usage  - local trails and the occassional Pisgah trip.  Would  lean toward traction over low rolling resistance.

Whatcha got?

Maxxis Ardent or anything Maxxis I like the Ignitor and Chronicle too.

I've gone from the Ardent 2.25 to the Ardent Race 2.2.

Slightly more expensive but faster rolling/lighter.

Around here I run Ardent/Ikon

thePisgah bike has a pair of minions.

I have run the Ikon in the hills and it hooks up surprisingly well. IDK if I would want to batter it down Pilot or Farlow on the reg but if you don't go too much I think you will like it for the majority of what you ride.

Maxxis Icon 2.2 front and rear most of the year around Charlotte, and love them.  I used to use an Ignitor on the front, paired w/a Crossmark in the rear.  Again, very good combo for around here most of the year.  When things get slick/loose (late fall leaves) and I need a bit more traction/grip, I'd move the Ignitor to the rear and put a WTB Bronson 2.2 on the front.  I like the Bronson, but it is quite heavy.  When it comes time to replace it, I'll probably go w/an Ardent (as others have suggested).
