Makes Reynolds strike seem like a decent crit option then if braking is that poor.

So, I switched over to 9100 solely for better braking. These wheels have been driving me nuts and almost to the point of wanting a disc bike. I can say that with 9100 brakes, braking with the Enve pads is legitimately good. It's as good if not better than with the Black Prince pads. Unfortunately, it took Dura Ace level brakes to get acceptable (actually, really good) braking.

If you have a problem using other pads, enve will not support.
So I use enve pads.

I have started using the grey Enve pads on my rims with the textured brake track and it has cured the squeal and shudder that no amount of toe in adjustment would fix with the Enve black pads.

I made the same switch from black to grey ENVE pads on a 2017 pair of 3.4s (with the new brake track) and it fixed the squeal for me as well. They don't last as long as the black pads but its definitely worth the trade off. I had contacted ENVE support and they recommended trying the greys and sent me a few pairs to try. This was on a Madone 9 with bespoke brakes.

With greater braking comes greater heat. I’d have no problems using grey pads for normal riding but have delaminated a pair of 4.5’s in the Alps

Tubular or clincher? And I take it you were using the black pads with the textured brake track?
