Looking for a top quality front hub replacement.
All 3 of these are about the same price, from companies known for quality....your suggestions please, if you have any experience with these or recommendations...?
It would go on a HED deep carbon tubular front rim with 18 bladed spokes.

Chris King ... they are works of art, never fail and light as heck. Of course, the other two are great hubs.
I forgot to mention smooooooooth.

How do they compare for ease of maintainance/stripdown reassembly?

All of these are sealed aren't they? My friends with Chris King hubs rarely even perform the suggested maintenance. (http://www.chrisking.com/tech/tech_FAQ.html) Unwise, but it proves their durability.

Oooh! Nice choices. Chris King for weight, Phil Wood for longevity. Since I'm Clydesdale class I went Phil Wood.

This is what I would post as a thread if I had any money (laughs). I vote for Phil Wood!
