700x27 tubular face-off: Vittoria Pave or Challenge Parigi-Roubaix?

Is anyone using one of these tires? Are there any other tubular tires in the 26 to 28mm size range?

I'm seeking opinions on road bike tubular tires in this range. Something tough enough for pot-holed pavement and smoother gravel.

I haven't used Vittoria Pavé, but I highly recommend Challenge Parigi-Roubaix tires. I now have them on a couple bikes. Light, supple, great road feel, straight base tapes, and durable so far (~1,000 miles).

Just bought a pair of Dugast Strada 27's. Haven't glued them yet, but my expectations are pretty high.

I have the Pave in 24mm ( I wanted 27mm, but my lovely wife got them for me as a surprise...) and they are really nice, but I would go for the 27mm personally as I am spoiled by the 30mm Gran Bois Cypres clinchers I ride on one of my bikes.

FMB and Dugast are also supposed to be superbe riding tires.

How tough and durable have you found the Vittoria Pave tire to be?

I love the Dugast 27mm PRs on the Frejus. The 25mm Veloflex PRs on the Cinelli are also outstanding, better than the 25mm Challenge Stradas I used.
