I've been using Tufo tubulars for a few years with great success. I like how easy to fit they are using Tufo rim tape and using the Tufo tyre sealant as a preventative measure. Note I once skimped on adding this to a new set of tubs and suffered immediate punctures on both wheels!!
The S33 Specials are a great, lightweight tub and are very reasonably priced. I also run the S3 lite version and these run really well. I think the brand may not be recognized as much as some of the other brands but always seems to receive excellent reviews.
I take it you've not tried anything else yet?

It is a well known common practice with some cycling magazines (and of course not just cycling) to give a "nice" review to manufacturers advertising in these magazines.
That said, I feel the brand is well recognized but mostly avoided....
I've been trying to figure out for years why everyone praising Tufo tyres invariably seems to find these cheap.
I still haven't figured this out yet but I can safely say I find these (and some others) actually extremely expensive for what they are with respect to what some other manufacturers offer at a slightly higher or equal price level.
