Fender suggestions for a road bike

My current bike: http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/schwinn/schwinn_letour_legacy.htm
I'm looking for fenders that have as much coverage as possible. After I put the fenders on, I don't think I'll be taking them off very much. I do prefer ones with mudflaps if it's an option.
I've looked at a few road bike-specific fenders but can't really make up my mind. I was thinking about getting the CRUD RoadRacer 2 set but I'm ordering through QBP and they don't have them in stock. Also my wheels are 700x28 and I think I read somewhere that the CRUD fenders aren't designed for anything above 23.
I've read some pretty iffy reviews about PlanetBike SpeedEZs and some okay ones about the SKS Race Blades but there have been reports of them warping a lot.
