Thanks for this post, I have been having trouble with the cheap Slime patches with the thick cut edges getting rubbed/folded up at the corners, I'm gonna get some of these feathered edge patches. I also believe that a good patch job is as good as a new tube.
Get fit. Stay safe. Enjoy life. Learn something to help someone in need.
