Fast and grip in the wet

" Bought these tyres for ride London 18 because the have a reputation for being fast, and the tan walls look good. Don't know if there light or not, I don't really care.
They were fast, and as the ride was wet, very wet. It did prove they do grip well in the wet, and as it was wet and seeing countless riders at the side or the road fixing punchers, I did expect to end up doing the same, but not one and no cuts on the tyre at the end either.
One point worth noting, because Vittoria recommend running these at quite a high pressure (20psi more then I run my usual Schwalbe Ones) they are not then most comfortable ride.
Will use for best on my Zipp's, but stick with Ones for regular use.

durano plus or marathon plus?????

Anyone rid both and which did they prefer? And is there much difference In the puncture protection?
Durano + does grip better both we and dry but does not last as long, compound is softer. Marathon is harder so will last longer, but not grip as well. Done 1000 miles this year on Durano + without a puncher on mainly country roads. Just replaced those tyres today.
