Haven't got Spyres but tend to use Disco  or Superstar for my pads depending on who's cheaper at the time.

I use Uberbike. Recommended by a guy who rides mountain bikes at a pretty high level and I have been perfectly happy with the products.

Hy-Rd not Spyres here, I too use discobrakes and have been very happy with their Kevlar compound

I used SwissStop Green to cure squeeling on the front Vs so bought SwissStop pads for the Spryes but have not fitted them yet.

So no help at all.

We use Nuke Proof (bought most recently from Chain Reaction) sintered or semi metallic (organic dissolve in a few hours in the hills!)http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/nukeproof-shimano-deore-m515-m525-tektro-disc-pads/rp-prod129816
 Very happy with these  ;D

Aztec Sintered Pads work well on the rear disc brake (a bit more resistant to overheating and wear less quickly) but lack the initial bite (quick response) I'd want on the front brake.  The sintered pads take a brief moment to reach full power - i.e. work best once warm.  I've just fitted the front disc brake to reduce rim wear over the winter, I'll get some semi metallic pads to try on the front instead of the organic currently fitted.  Those
Swissstop E-bike pads might also be worth a try.

WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CLARKES  semi metallic pads disintigrate? 3 pairs out of 4, one of the pads has fallen off / come completely away from the backing.  These are dangerous. Suggest a different make of pad front and rear.

I moved to Nuke proof semi,and seem to bite well, slightest of squeels when discs are wet, but after a rotation or two  they're fine.
