I have a White Industries wheelset. Light and expensive. The freehub is a bit noisy, but not as noisy as a King. If you're looking for absolute bomb-proof then you can't beat the Philwood. I've picked one up and had a chance to look at the internals. It uses something like 8 pawls whereas the WI has 3. The Phil's heavy though. The nice thing about both is that the bearings they use are just standard bearings that you can get just about anywhere.

One other thing I like about the WI hubs over other similar high-end aftermarket hubs (King, Phil, etc) is that they're easy to service (King requires a special tool) and you can buy either a Shimano or Campy freehub separately. Last time I checked the freehubs were $125.
