I used schwalbe doc blue.
It was not cheap, but poor performance.
I do not recommend it.
Now I am using the Mariposa caffelatex. It's expensive, but good performance.

I found this sealant test on Slowtwitch (granted on clinchers), and it seems that Stan's and Caffeelatex might be surpassed by Orange Seal and Bontrager TLR.

I recently switched over to Orange seal because the bulk container is cheaper and have had good luck with it. Stan's seemed to work well too. Did not have good luck at all with Pitstop.

Apparently Schwalbe Doc Blue is repackaged Stan's (according to the Slowtwitch link).

Bumping this thread...

So what is the consensus out there - is Orange Seal better than Caffelattex?

I think there are several brands which might be rebranded Stans!?
Schwalbe have made no secret of the fact that Doc blue is from No tubes.

Don't remember where i read the test, but i think Bontrager and Orange came out as winners.
Slime i have tested and i had no luck with it.

I have Bontrager TLR, Orange sealant, Stans sealant, Schwalbe Doc blue, Slime and Hutchinson Protect air.
Only punctured using Slime which i would not recommend.

I punctured a Schwalbe G-One, the Slime sealant did not seal this very good.
I had to press both thumbs over the hole to make it stop.
When it stopped, air pressure was so low that it was virtually no air left in the tire.

For sake of it, i now carry

aswell as a new bottle of Bontrager TLR and Co2 pump.

Which orange seal version are people using in their tubulars?

Orange Seal or Orange Endurance seal?

I use zefal sealant cheap and works about as well as stans. Got me through a race with a badly punctured tub. the tub would only hold 30 psi but that was enough.

I've tried the Caffèlatex stuff. Seems to be working so far. Need to ride the 'repaired' tub now.

can you use the stans sealant in a tubular tyre after you have punctured at the roadside?

The trouble with Stans roadside is actually getting it into the tubs. I like the Orange Seal because it comes with a little "hose" that, once the valve core is removed just goes over the top and you can squeeze about 15ml or so in there. Put the valve core back in and pump it up.
In fact, why don't I just show you my entire "toolkit" that I always have in my back pocket...

Contents:
1. Teeny Swiss Army knife with a valve core remover attached. The knife can help with getting little shards out of the tire if need be.
2. A valve extender and spare valve core (just in case).
3. A spoke wrench (just in case and only relevant for my classics wheels).
4. A teensy Allen wrench that fits the new Campy rear derailleur limit screws.
5. A teensy Lezyne Multitool.
6. An old Mavic Hub tool, which is great for prying underneath a glued tubular should you have to remove it.
7. A presta/scrhader valve adapter (if pump breaks or whatever and you need to use a gas station pump.
8.. The Orange Seal hose, and Orange Seal cap, on a Tufo Tyre Sealant 50ml bottle, because the Orange Seal bottles don't come in small sizes, just a big 4oz size.

Very useful, thanks for sharing. I'm sure that's only me, but how do you use the hose with the sealant bottle? I detached the orange thingy and attached the hose, but when I squeezed the bottle, nothing went into the hose. Now I carry a small paint squeeze bottle with otange sealant in it and I hope that I can get the sealant into the valve after removing the core.
