I heard a rumor that the new DeeMaxxs' are gonna have a 4 pawl system instead of the 2 pawls- I destroyed my rear DeeMaxx hubs with the 2 pawls:madman: , maybe the 4 pawls would have lasted a little longer.

The assumption that you pay more for quality it absurd. Last time I heard you still get a not much for the amount of doe you pay into them.

You're paying for the lightest wheels out there.

If you read the info in the link you will see that its not a rumor.

Hope Pro IIs laced to Mavic EX 729s: normal, non-proprietary (easy to find) spokes, reasonable weight, about $550 handbuilt and shipped at Universal. The Mavics are ridiculously expensive...

After owning several sets of Deemax wheels, I would spend the money on a set of I9s instead.
I have never been impressed with Mavic hubs, they need lots of attention (they come loose all the time) and seem to eat bearings.
Mavic hoops are some of the best available, and paired with I9 hubs & spokes make a amazing wheelset.
