Shinko 230 vs Shinko 777

It's time for a new front tire, but there are too many options! I've decided to give Shinko's a try, but which ones?? I think I've narrowed it down to the 230's or 777's. I don't ride real aggressively and I'm interested in longevity. Anybody have comments on these two? Or any other Shinko's?

I have never ridden a shinko Tire. I have Heard other say they are great. I ride Pirrells and like them but I am always looking for a cost saver. Let us know what you do.

My feet on the pegs and lots of time to go where the road leads.

I haven't decided yet, but it sounds like the 777 is designed for heavier bikes while the 230 is designed for higher speeds. Right now the 777 has the vote. I'm not strictly sold on Shinko's, but it sounds like you get a good product for a reasonable price.
