I see that spoke tension on Zipp rims is now recommended to be 100kg which is reasuring but I wanted to now how hard people pre-tension the spokes to seat the "J" into the hub? With the aluminium rims I've used to date things have been easy, just pull as hard as I can, but at the price of Zipps I'm more worried that I might pull the nipple through and crack the rim like a friend of a friend did, owch...

If anyone has experience building with Zipp rims and can offer reasurances, warnings or other advice I'd love to hear from ya!
