Dunlop Ntec Slicks

Im sure you guys have probably talked about this 100 times, but who has been using Dulop ntecs lately and how do you like them? Anyone ridden with anything they think is better or comparable? Any one with some info chime in.

Yesterday there were several people riding the NTECHs and they swore by them. It seems that there are two types, the US produced ones that run for like 360 and the UK ones that cost about 470 USD but last a while more than any other brand.
I might try them soon, they seem like a very good option. I want to give the 003 a test first.

I couldn't justify spending that much on a pair of n-tecs without ever testing dunlops before, but i did find a special for the d209 gp-a. they had a medium front with two soft rears for just north of $300.00. Supposed to be a really good tire, but i have yet to take them to the track. I rode it around my neighborhood and it feels like a capable tire but turns in a bit slower and feels like it favors the riders who ride the back wheel.

Anyone melted a set of these yet, i would appreciate the insight?

I learnt a lot about tires on Saturday. For our endurance team we tested the Pirelli Supercorsas. Used a Soft GPA rear and I got to try a set of NTEC 211 DOTs.
The front of the Pirelli is awesome. The rear, well, I need to figure out what happened.
The soft rear GPA lasted about 2 hours on the endurance and still has some life. Granted we were doing slow lap times (above 2 mins). The NTECs felt amazing, I am still searching for "my" tire though, although it will be difficult to beat the Dunlops.

yeah i just murdered the soft rear yesterday, i couldn't make the whole day with it. It was just too hot for a soft rear, but all in all rode pretty well. I think a medium front and rear would be spectacular in our current weather.
