With that said, I wasn't blown away by the Veloflex Corsa (even with latex tubes). I actually rate the Michelin Krylion pretty high for a good overall tire.
I must say that I feel like the Veloflex/Vredestein combo lives up to the high praise it get's around here, but I just wouldn't call it my favorite everyday tire.
No matter what gear I'm in...it feels like either I'm stronger or I have a strong tail wind.
There's always a downside They don't last too long. I wish they sold them at a discount for volume. I'd buy a dozen if they would knock off 10%.

I get easily over 2k miles out of a pair and probably one flat every 2 sets I use open paves during the road salt months however.

I have tried ProRace2 and 3 tires and find while fast the thread cuts like crazy. I seem to get a flat every 300-400 miles and after 1500-2000 miles or so they are so cut up I have to trash them. Maybe if I raced and had a dedicated set of wheels I would use them.

Most people on this forum have far more riding experience than you at this time, Stu. No offense, but it's reality.
More locations, higher skill level, more miles, more years/decades. This is why Mondo tires are not highly rated by folks who have more experience (not to mention more equipment experience).
I'm back on my training wheels after 2000km's on my carbon tubs.
Amazed at the smooth-ness of these tires.
I had a nasty cut on the last one I used (second ride ) but put a Park tire boot. Did 5000 km's on the first pair (swapping them front-rear). Will buy again, no doubt.
