Gonna be doing wheels on my bike and have almost come to a decision. I am gonna be doing front and rear DT 470 rims with either Hope Pro 2 hubs or DT Swiss 370 hubs.

Which hubs should I go with?

How come Hadley is preferred?
for me...about three times the engagement and quieter. I didn't realize how much I would prefer a 72 point engagement over my Pro2, which has around 24 I think, don't quote me on that. It's just that for the rocky step ups I encounter on my local trails I really wish I could ratchet back and power forward more easily. It's a big plus for technical climbing where you can't take a full pedal stroke due to the rocks you are trying to maneuver over.

Plus when I converted my Pro2 to a 10mm TA (rear) I had to replace the axle. This meant taking off and pressing on the bearings. I don't think you have to replace the axle to do this on the Hadley's. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
