29er tire liners

Anyone know if there are any tire liners out there yet for 29ers? I tried the biggest cx tuffy liner i could find and it's not even close to being wide enough (2.3 WTB ExiWolf). I live in Tucson so cacti thorns are a problem. I've already had one flat due to thorns, and it definitely would have been avoided with a tire liner!

There ain't no cheap fix. Liners can be heavy- and either do not stop punctures- or cause them. If you have to have thorn protection- then get a tyre with a Kevlar band on the tread. Will still add weight but works better than a liner.
