Help in selecting a tubularBob1010

With all the vast knowledge on this forum, I am looking for some help in finding the right tubular.I am looking for a tire with low rolling resistance, punture resistance,wear ability and quality. I have tried Tufo S-Lite 215 and Continental Comp's...is there a better tire out there...Thanks
For you, the best tubular is probably a clincher.Spunout

Or, get some heavy training tubulars.

Bob,
You have tried a couple of the favored, but expensive tires. I'm not sure you will find a better tire than the Conti Comp. The Conti Sprinter is a good compromise for resistance, wear, and handling. You should be able to find a Sprinter for 3 for about $100, including shipping, from some of the UK sites. I have purchased from Sdeal in the past at a good price. Also, LaBicicletta (http://www.labicicletta.com/) is selling them for $33 US plus shipping. Good luck on your choice.
