Conti Ultrasports first impression - surprised how good

I recently had a series of mechanicals that shredded my Vittoria Rubino Pro (1yr) and a Conti GP4000 (<3 months). Both those tires had been going great, no complaints.

I resorted to a "cheaper" Conti Ultrasport tire that I got at my pricey LBS for $29 (I'm sure it's way cheaper online) since I ordered GP4000s from PBK and am waiting for them to be shipped.

Did a 70miler today, and so far, they worked great. I have to admit that I can't even tell the difference between this tire and the 2x more expensive Rubinos and GP4000s.

Can anyone comment on the durability of this tire? So far in my (extremely) limited use, I've been very satisfied, especially given the low cost of these tires.
