I dislike Heavy Duty tubes in general. The extra rubber thickness makes the whole tire run warmer, which causes increased wear (inside & out).
If the nail, wire, glass or screw is sharp enough to go thru the tire it will go thru any tube, it only needs to be 1, 2 or 3 mm longer to go thru a HD tube.
Glad that you finally succeeded with your install.
