I have nearly the same set up. I just started riding them so only have about 100 miles on a mix of road, dirt and some single track. I also like the
the traction on softer/loose gravel and the overall cushioning. They are super stable on downhills. On single track the bike responds well in tight sections. I am learning to be mindful of peddle strikes on rougher roads/trails. This is my first 650 tire so I can't compare to others. Over all I think I will be riding these a lot since I like to link up different surfaces.
