maxxis or hutchison?

i need some new tyres. my choices are: maxxis larsen TTs, hutchison barracuda or pirahna. i have had larsens before, and like them, but have heard some positive reviews about the barracuda and pirahna.
which tyre do you prefer?

I have never tried either, but I've heard good things from the larsen, and i trust maxxis the most, so preferrably the tt's.

what kind of riding do you do? whats the terrain like? that might help people help you. those two hutchinson tires are at opposite ends of the terrain spectrum.
