Okay, i want to get new tubs.
I've always liked the carbons. I had others as well of course, continental (sorry, they suck), vittoria's, schwalbe (not reliable manufacturing). I preferred the ride of the carbons with the vitts evo cx's a close second. The carbons last longer and flatted less - at least for me.
Has anyone tried both the carbons and the new vitt isogrip ?

I dont have any experience with the Vittoria Isogrip, but I second your choice for the Carbon, as I got very similar experience with yours (lasted much much longer and less likely flats than the Extreme).
