I know these roll very well.. how is the puncture resistance and durability?

I've been riding gp4000s. Will I start getting flats if I switch to one of these two?

I rode 57 miles on supersonics this weekend at knoxville. It was pissy down rain. I have done this over and over again. Flats happen, but not enough to worry about it IMO

I am currently running a set of turbo cotton on my road bike. I only have about 200 miles so far, but no issues so far and the tyres do seem to be top notch. I am going to see how the wear does pan out and make a decision as to whether to use in the future, my current thought is yes.

On the internet, you can be anything you want. It is a pity so many people choose to be stupid.

I put on a brand new GP4000s II last weekend for a TT, because rain was in the forecast and I thought it would be better flat protection.

I flatted warming up and barely made my start time.

I have 500+ miles on them. Durability is excellent with no cuts, but I did have a bad flat once when something tore a large gash in the middle of the tread and through the kevlar. Not sure any tire would have stopped that though.
