Strength:

seals very well, inexpensive

Weakness:

no slimed tire is magic - some punctures are going to require changing a tube no matter what

Purchased on sale (and several at a time), these were less expensive than other slimed tubes and they do the job. I've run over thorns and heard the dreaded hissing at the beginning of a race, kept rolling so the tube had time to self-seal and the slime would coat the puncture, and was able to finish the race with air in my tube. Come race time, not having to stop to change a flat says it all!

Strength:

Holds air

Weakness:

the sealant doesn't seal the punctures. also whenever the bike sits for a while the sealant pools at the lowest point of the tube and makes the wheel off balance for about 10 minutes which can be bad on a downhill bike.

Used on the front wheel with a single-ply tire. I had high hopes for these tubes, but they just don't seal the pinch flats. I could see the sealant coming out of the two holes, but not sticking. I still think the best way to avoid pinch flats is a multiple-ply tire. I got the idea of these from my neighbor who used them on his road bike, but he has not had much success either.
