Hi I have used both on my 990 and they seem to deliver the same result.
No issue with either .
if I'm lucky I can get 3 days of riding out of them over gravel - rock and a bit of tarseal thrown in , that's about 1200-1500 km .

Pro's
: Great traction of road.
: Great Price
: Good road manners wet or dry
: Side walls also strong = puncture resistance
: Big grins when exiting gravel corners.

Cons : Shelve life . (but refer back to that Grin factor )

Throw a T 63 on the front and enjoy
