Best 28 mm tubeless tire?

It's been a year since I looked into this. Is there anything better than IRC's RBCC? I ride a 2/3 mix of pavement and mostly hard packed dirt, and like fast and supple. I'm married to 28 mm.

Schwalbe G-One speed 30mm. Also Hutchinson and Gravel King (slick, not the short knob).

28mm tubeless limits you a bit. My nag with Schwalbe and Hutchinson tires is that they cost as much as friggin steel-belted-radial car tires each (even on Amazon, outside of sales). Panaracer has some slick-like tubeless GravelKings I'd recommend giving a go....in part because even their list price is $50USD.

I haven't tried anything else in this size range besides the G-One Speed/S-One, but I like them so much that I have no desire to look elsewhere (as long as I can plan ahead and stock up when I find a decent price on them).

Thanks everyone for the advice.

Can't seem to find RBCCs in stock.

I read some reviews complaining about a harsh ride in the Hutchinson tires, is that true of newer ones? I can get them locally and not have to wait for a delivery truck.

I really liked the Bontrager AW2's I used (in 32mm). They come in 28mm tubeless, too.

Looks like a couple Amazon sellers still have them, not particularly cheap though.

Yeah, I read the same thing - so I avoided them.

Iím using the Hutchenson 700x40 Overide and it is more plush than the Schwable 700x30 G-One or the 700x40 Donnaly MSO (all at 50 psi).

Some of the first generation Hutchenson tubeless tires we not as plush as the current product.
