Tubes or tubeless

I'm making the switch. I like my dura ace wheels. I'm going to run as intended and go tubeless. This a big move for me as I have been using tubes since 73'.

Still worried about tubeless- There is not the variety of tyres availble to go "IT" and when you do puncture- you have to run a tube in any case.

Punctures still occur with tubeless.
