The worst I’ve even had was on Bontrager wheels using their rubber rim strip instead of tape combined with a Tough Casing WTB tire. It went on fine but when it was time to remove the tire the bead was properly trapped between the rim wall and the rubber rim strip the whole way around. CushCore Pro gave me almost zero room to flex or shift the tire.  As you say, I used a mallet to whack the handle of the Bead Dropper and just punched the bead out the whole way around. It took a bit longer but wasn’t a big deal. I tossed the rubber strips and switched to tape going forward.
