Anyone with experience Pilot Power 2CT's

I'm looking to get a set. I know they're old models, but they came on my bike and I felt very comfortable with them, Front down to threads with over 5k miles on it, and rear do threads with over 4k miles. I'm ride mostly straights so looking forward to having harder long lasting center, so if I can have same cornering and traction with a few more K miles, I'll be very happy. I've read tons of great reviews on Pilot Power 2's, and if they're so good, why discontinuing them?
Was also thinking about the Pirelli Rossa 3's, but i'm not too convinced since its a single compound in front tire. I was also considering the Pilot Power 5's, but I didn't read any good reviews on those.
I had Bridestone Battlax BT023's on my previous bike, but I wasnt very confident in those, and the rear slid out a bit sometimes when I'd accelerate even just mildly out of turns. I've even thought about getting the Battlax Hypersport S22's
I dont care about wet. I just want the absolute best dry performance street tire for aggressive riding on bends and turns, and long life bc of 95% riding straights. I dont need or care about wet performance as I dont ever ride in rain or wet roads. so what tire is best for all that? I've been very pleased with my Michelin Pilot Power 2's
Also Pilot Power 2 are well over a decade's old technology as the Battlax Hypersport s22 are relatively new, only year or 2 as of Aug 2020.

I'm currently on Michelin Road 5's. They're a little pricey, but provide a lot of meat in the center and soft sides. I've had great experiences with them. I use to run the 2CT's on my GSXR and loved them, but I kept wearing them down too fast.

I had them on my VFR800. Front cupped horribly. Dunlop Sportmax Q3+ or the Roafsmart 3 are my current favorites.
