Strength:

Lighter than my old AM wheel set but much stronger. Tubeless set-up is really easy with Maxxis Minion DHF too.

Weakness:

NONE

Bought these from Chain Reaction to replace my Pro2/DT 5.1 wheelset. Had a couple of discount vouchers so these cam in cheaper than the normal Pro2/Flow wheelset. Tubeless set-up was a piece of cake and holding pressure really well. Roll quickly and pick up speed really well.
Overall a great wheelset..

Bike set-up:
Intense 6.6 with 5th Element Coil - Hope Tech M4 brakes - Pro3 AM4/Flow wheels - 10sp XT groupset

Strength:

Light, great discs, stiff, excellent hubs.

Weakness:

After 3½ months broke a spoke in front wheel.
3 days later a spoke in rear wheel broke.
Spokes are DT SWISS COMPETITION straight.
Stans rims ZTR Flow do not hold air with the UST specific rimstrips from Stan (20$), but are OK with Bontrager rim strips (1$).
Wheels are made in Hope factory and Hope have not yet bothered answering my mail after 4 days.

Who should buy the wheels / not buy the wheels.
I do not know.
I am looking for perfect wheels, but maybe they are not made. Maybe I'll just take the hubs and buy other rims and use Sapim CX-ray spokes.
The hubs are the best part of these wheels.

Similar Products Used: Hope Pro2 hubs. Now 4 years and still perfect. They have taken a lot of abuse, where the Pro3 have not yet been out on rugged trails.
DT-SWISS 1800. OK but too narrow to have wider than 2.0 tyres on them.
Mavic 321. OK, but a bit heavy.

Strength:

set it and forget it ive broken them in and had them checked and retensioned after about 50 to 60 miles and havent touched them since they are great .most of my riding is in a park with lots of rock gardens and they havent given me any trouble in over 1500 miles.

Weakness:

none so far

these wheels havnt given me any problems in 2.5 yrs and 1000s of miles on hope hubs and hoops ,just jewelery for the bike, bling bling not bling bang.
