What are yalls opinions about the quality of jensons hand built wheels?

Do they do a good job?

I am considering having them build me a set but it seems to me that build quality has as much to do with performance as part quality. (I suspect build is the difference between the "bent on my first ride" reviews and the "beat the crap outta them and they're still true" reviews that show up for the same rim).

Will having jenson build a custom wheel get me a better product than buying a completed wheelset from mavic, azonic, or or others?

Are the hope hubs i'm looking at going to be better than that which come on deetraks or outlaws?

Mine were excellent

I rush ordered a wheelset for my new SWorks Epic back in '03 from Jenson. King disc hubs with Mavic 3.1 UST rims. My exisisting wheelset was really heavy, the rear rim was failing, and I wanted a new set in time for an upcoming weekend race. Well, I ordered them on a Tuesday, and they arrived Friday morning. They've been trued once in 3 years, and I'm over 200#. Good experience here.
