Strengths:    great build quality and durable.

Weaknesses:    Thick mud traction is not as good as the Rocket Ron's

Bottom Line:   
Out of the box; one of the best built tubulars i have seen and i have gone through about 50 both road and CX tubies. Mounts up very easy and straight. I tried a straight glue up with 5 layers of glue, Vittoria out of the can. Rolled both tires off on the second semi-dry and fast race. These were on a 23mm wide rim like the HED Ardennes made by Neuvation. Next, i used tape and glue; Vittoria Mastic again and Jantex tape. These tires may never come off! I am not looking forward to removing them.
No sealant needed yet. The tires are still firmly inflated since they were last used in December. I am writing this in May, late May.
The tires are not the absolute stickest in mud that i have, but they are very controllable and they roll fast. Don't think i have ever crashed with them. They give plenty of warning before they slide. Something that i can't say for other tires. However, if i am racing a mud-fest, i will opt for the Rocket Rons in either clincher or tubular.
