I don't, but I've done plenty of randonneuring with guys using those. I've seen similar number of flats on the Cypres as I have on any other tire, so it doesn't seem to suffer any issues with being delicate for being as supple a casing as it has.
The Hetre is a bit more durable due to the larger volume and slightly heavier tread pattern.
The Cypres is a little less so, but still gets high marks from Jan Heine. Flats (3 in ~2700 miles) were listed as happening on debris strewn shoulders of major roads, with no problems on gravel and backroads.
