How does the Maxxis OverDrive Elite Dual K2 tyre compare to the Marathon Supreme?

I was looking at what new tyres to get for my very soon to be hybridized Trek 830 Mountain Bike, and I was set to get the Marathon Supreme tyre(which I know is pretty damn good) and a tyre from Maxxis caught my eye, that I wondered if it could be even better than the Marathon Supreme?

The Maxxis tyre in question is the Maxxis OverDrive Elite Trekking Folding Tire Dual K2 26x2.00 inch and in addition to having what looks to be some serious protection against flats, I noticed it is also has 120 tpi casing vs 67 tpi casing for the Marathon Supreme.

Anyone had any experience with this tyre and if so, what are your thoughts?
