Velox Jantex tubular tape

I ordered some Velox Jantex tub tape online, and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with it? Any issues? I have been using Tufo extreme and decided I will give Velox a try.

it's ok. some things it seems to be fine for others less so.

pros:
cheaper
easier to remove
able to get it at pbk

cons:
crap paper backing more difficult to remove without breaking than tufo
you ride crits on it, and you'll get threads and wads of glue ejecting out from the tire/tape/rim interface

on my track wheels its been great. however on my road wheels that i routinely do crits on, the material coming out of the join makes me nervous (and hence i went back to the extreme). i can only assume its coming out cause the tire is squirelling on the rim bed. having said that i've ridden about 100+ crits on wheels using the velox tape and never rolled a tire. these are crits with 90 degree corners that you'll hit at 45kmh and then drive out of.
