Front tire for "down country " (120 travel) MTB

I live in Rooty, rocky New England but ride pretty cautiously and also jump into some X-country races. I have new wheels with inner diameter of 30mm. bike is 29’er
I have a 2.4 recon to run in the rear but need something up front. I was thinking a dissector but also just was reading about the Teravail Honcho or Ehline. Does anyone have experience with Teravail?
open to suggestions of both tire and width.

Maxxis specific, but

This thread has some ideas.
