Too late to matter now, but for the record, I was on Black Magic XF's for the 49 in the rain last year and I wouldn't hesitate to go with them again as a wet/dry compromise. They seem to slip predictably enough that going 80-90% of my marathon pace on the flat felt comfortable, and that's about what I'd do in the dry anyway. But try to pick up the pace or push hard on the uphills and it feels like I soon reach a point where more effort just results in more slippage instead of more speed.

I also used the Road War Evos in a rainy local half marathon earlier this year, and I couldn't tell much difference between them. But in a short race, I was definitely limited by (lack of) grip. Pure rain wheels would've been a better choice on that occasion.
