On impulse, I emailed Panaracer to see if they would be making a 29er version of the Fire XC (nice loose rock tire).

You are clear. Other details cannot be discussed yet!
I hope whatever they make, it won't overlap with one (and therewith immediately over a dozen) of the current offererings. No fair knob+decent rolling. Low knob-great rolling, or big knob-sick grip-great mud shedding. Makes it worth putting it on the tire pile, I didn't even get the Schwalbe or Maxxis, or IRC Mythos, they just overlap too much.
