Tubeless tire selection

Next week I'm getting a pair of Shimano Dura-Ace WH7900-TL's. I'm probably going to start out with tubes, especially with some of the things people say about mounting tubeless tires(Hutchison's). Is there any brand or version of Hutchison's that is easier to mount? I'm sure there are plenty of threads started about this, but the search function isn't exactly google on this site.

We've sold a lot of Hutchinson Fusion tubeless, everyone seems to have good luck with them. We've sold the Intensive tubeless for those who want a little wider tire, and those have worked out well. I seem to be the only one in the shop who's interested in the slightly lighter weight Hutchinson Atom tubeless tires, but I've worn out one pair and have a second pair installed; I really like them. I also used them without tubes on some regular rims, Mavic Ksyrium Elites. My only complaint there was the mounted tire is very narrow on the standard rim, about 21mm wide. With the other ones, I've used them on Stan's Alpha 340 rims, and their mounted width is 23mm. Good results with all of them.

The Intensives are a great tire and pretty easy to mount and inflate; same for Fusion2. I'd avoid Fusion3; they are just a bit harder to get mounted and inflated than the others.
