Brand new Hed3's for $1200

Zipp 808's with ceramic bearings that have only been raced a couple times for $1600

Which is the better deal? Which are the better wheels for terrain ranging from flat to moderate, rolling hills? Is $400 worth half a kilo in weight for going uphill?

I don't know what exactly are the downsides to these wheels. I think I have heard that H3's wobble going downhill. Is there some kind of wobble issue or am I just making that up in my head somehow? Also, are the 808's difficult to handle in cross winds -- is that the only complaint?

Are you training on these, too, or are you asking for IM and HIM courses?

I wouldn't recommend training on either of these, if that was a possibility.

The H3s are going to be stiffer and more durable than the Zipps, thought the Zipps will be lighter. I also assume you are going tubular, or no? The H3 carbon tubular wheels are a lot lighter than the clinchers.
