New Gravel Tyres Advice

After a couple of weeks of constant puncture repairs I have come to the conclusion that my beloved Hutchinson Overides are reaching the end of their life.

As much as I love these tyres for their low rolling resistance, I feel like they haven't lasted as long as I hoped. So I am looking for a new set of tyres.

Obviously I know that durability and rolling resistance are a compromise in one way or the other but I'd like some advice on what I should go for next.

I'd like a fast rolling tyre that is also durable, I'm not worried about the sizing of the tyre given that my GX can take up to 50c.

I commute every day on a mixed surface route and take it off road at weekends so my bias would be 80/20 road to off road usage.

I have been looking at the Specialized Borough Armadillo but I know that this is going to be a very heavy and potentially slow tyre.
