I am working on switching to tubulars for racing this year.

I have 2 options available at a good price and need some feedback.

Dura Ace hub with mavic reflex, standard 32 hole build.
Easton EA70 X, these are the same as the old Velomax/Easton Circuit wheelset but with an aluminum tubular rim. Claimed weight is 1650 grams and these will be the cheaper option.

I am 5'7" with a race weight of 150-155lbs and race in BC where some of the course are pretty rough.

Agree on the DA / Reflex rims. Strong and easy to true and fix. While i like the Velomax wheels, I borrowed a pair of the clinchers and blew a spike after 2 rides. Not good. Not nearly as easy to get parts, etc.

Go with what works.
