I don't like the tufo sealant, leaks at about 90 psi. I've been using
Rock n' Roll Tube Spooge. similiar stuff but will not ooze out up till
about 115psi (reported, I haven't needed it).
They are mountable with regular glue, just scrape the basetape a little
to remove the sealant (like the veloflex tubulars).

come on, you know you want to do it.
I have not tried Tufo tubular tires.

I prefer the Vittoria cx tires but they seem to get the most punctures; but that may be just because I've ridden them more than any others. Also the top of the line tubulars usually have latex tubes; which loose air and require much more tire inflation maintenance.

I've switched to Continental Sprinter and Challenge training tires as they have butyl tubes and the tread seems very durable.
