tubular recommendations: stretchable but puncture resistant

Looking for a recommendation on a tubular that's not too hard to mount, can be pre-stretched, but has good puncture resistance for city riding.

I've been dealing with Vittoria Rallys for about fifteen years now and have no complaints. The few punctures I've gotten have invariably happened as the tread is just about shot, so no need to take it apart and patch the tube.

“No one in this world, so far as I know — and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me — has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.”

H.L. Mencken, (1926)
