All Around Tubular

Is there a moderately priced all-around tubular tire that will function decently in mud to dry conditions? Thx.

I ran Fango for the rear and I think the tread slips more under hard pedaling than Grifo. Others have said the same. If I'd had the choice I would have run Grifo front and rear.

34s have (theoretically) 13% more volume than 32s, and I think it makes a difference.
