Wheelsmith has always had a good name and I decided to build my first wheelset using them. I guess in hindsight that double butted spokes are the preferred way to go but I do not anticipate any problems with my build.
These are solid, get-the-job-done, old-fashioned stainless steel spokes. They aren't aero, not lightweight, not even butted. But if you're looking at these, you're probably not building fussy lightweight race wheels. I used these on replacing a trashed rim on my mountain touring bike: Mavic 117 32-hole to an old Hope Ti rear hub. My calipers showed constant 2.0mm for the entire length. Length sizing was correct. Threads are clean and smooth. Always use spoke prep!
BEST USES: Touring, Cyclocross, Casual Riding, Mountain Biking
Took off 1 star for value because you're stuck buying a whole bag even if you only need a dozen. Otherwise the product is fine. And why wouldn't it be? This is just a steel wire...hard to get that wrong.
