Sub $2500 all mountain suggestions?

I'm in the market for an all mountain bike. Currently my short list consists of the Santa Cruz Butcher D, the Santa Cruz Heckler D, and the Giant Reign 2. Are there any others that I should be looking at?

Scott Bikes has some rocking options. Scott Scale just won a world XC Race in South Africa.

Try looking at the Santa Cruz Tallboy as well. That is a great price range. Let us get some pics of your choice.

Rocky mountain slayer 30. as you go you can upgrade parts, but that frame will last forever and is amazing. otherwise, the butcher is a pretty good bike. I would say a trek remedy, but they start just above $2500.

another vote for the Rocky Mountain Slayer. Though the reign is a pretty nice ride as well.

Yeti asr5 or the Diamondback mission or sortie series might be worth a look as well
