Maxxis Rekon (F) and Ikon (R)?

Seeking local knowledge/experience running 29er Rekon front and Ikon rear on local trails. Just picked up a demo Horsethief with Minion DHF/DHR and they seem like slow-rolling overkill for our trails. 

Is anyone running this combo locally?

Yes, great combo for around here and the mountains, IMO..  I run a 2.6 rekon and 2.35 ikon.   

Though, it was time to replace a couple rear ikons in our garage and I decided to do another ikon on one bike and a rekon race on another.  So far I really like the rekon race.  The knobs are slightly shorter than the ikon and it isn't 3C so I think it will wear faster.  The ikons wear like iron..
