Presta + Slime = clogged valve
When you fill a presta tube with air, you normally have to pop the valve head after you un-screw it. When there is slime in the tube, some of the slime comes out and clogs the valve. After 2-3 fills, the valve is all clogged up and filling becomes a big problem.
Schrader valves are fine, but forget slime with with Presta valves.

I WOULD GET A FLAT EVERY OTHER TIME I RODE.
MIND YOU I RIDE OFF ROAD EVERY TIME.
I HAVE YET TO GET A FLAT SINCE USING THE SLIMEY TUBES.HOWEVER,THE RIDE IS A BIT MORE HARSH COMPARED TO LIGHTER TUBES BUT THE TRADE OFF IS WORTH IT.SO IF YOU RIDE ON TRAILS WITH THORNS AND SUCH YOU MAY LIKE THESE TUBES,OR PERHAPS YOU LIKE TO FIX FLATS.

Finally a tube that didn't blow
This is the only tube I've had that didn't go flat after 2 rides offroad. The service was excellent. I haven't had the tires back off so I don't know if they have self sealed or are unblemished but I finally have confidence to go miles off the beaten path without worrying about carrying or pushing my bike back home.
