Not listed, but I've been riding on Pirelli Angel STs. They have just barely started to square with nearly 5k miles, both commuting and twisties. They probably don't have the absolute grip of some of the tires you listed, but for street riding they are pretty solid.

yeah, lol. actually thats what im running now. but ive had issues with slipping out around corners when they are warm..not hot but warm...and i dont like that but overall you are absolutely right...they are def a solid tire...lol! I have about 5k on mine prolly 6k and ive burned it off 3 or 4 times and thru 1000s of twistys...it will still be good to go thru this season too im sure lol...cause its so solid...i think i like a little softer tires though lol...not that i like throwing away money but i like to KNOW im gonna stick if i have to throw her over thru a corner ya know..

of the ones listed, the 016 is the best all around. worse than some in some areas, better in others, but overall - better (IMHO)

I like the Power One 2ct, the BT003, but Q2's best if they were there.

BT016- on your list. PP 2CT pretty good too.

Overall? Dunlop Q2 hands down.
I straight PUNISHED a set of these last year with 4 TD's and a couple thousand street miles. When I sold the bike they still had tread left.

I voted the 016 as well. They seem to be a decent compromise for being ok at various riding styles. I prefer Pirelli for more aggressive riding and have never tried the Q2's but they seem to be popular. I might give them a shot sometime in the near future.

I'm loving my Q2s. A couple of trackdays and 5-6,000 street miles and they still look pretty good. Need to replace the back one because of a nail though.
