I hear that these bad boys don't have to worry about stinkin' flats.

$21? Have you not heard of patch kits? Wham!

And, yeah, thorns will get through small 8's in a hurry, they are fast but not exactly puncture proof

I don't patch while out on a ride, I am not that patient... I just bring the lot home with me and some rainy afternoon I patch a bunch of 'em.

any votes on the Panaracer Rampage 29x2.35
I used the 2.35 Rampage (26 though) for a season. Excellent tire. No flats on it that I recall.

Just recently switched to Rampage 26x2.1 tubeless and very happy with those as well.
