Any Clydes on Hutchinson Fusion 2 Kevlar tires?

I had to exchange some tires that did not work for me for something, so I chose the Hutchinson Fusion 2 kevlar. I've read reviews on the review sites. Seem to be ok, but most complained about the non kevlar new version. Mine is not the tubeless model.

The version I have seems to be the one that made them happy. But I wondering if any you clydes are riding them?

Beanz, I had the Fusion TDF issue bought from Performance and had 5 rear pinch flats in 2 rides.. I ended up giving them to a lightweight friend who used them with no problems.. He only weighs 150lbs..

I would put them at max pressure, especially the rear, but they are a very soft tire..

I read that on the review site, the TDF was troublesome. I'm hoping the kevlar version is as good as the kevlar reviews. I'm hoping it's a different setup from teh TDF. But I'm using it as a front tire only!
