Sapim Leader Straight Gauge, specifically.
I've been putting off a wheelbuild for a couple months due to $$$ constraints. With DT Swiss or Wheelsmith spokes, I'm looking at $60-70 in spokes and nipples. With this, it's closer to $30, which isn't so bad. But is there much of a quality difference between Sapim and DT Swiss/Wheelsmith? Some info: This will be for a fixed gear wheelset, laced to MA3s and I'm ~190 lbs.
On a side note, is there anyplace else someone can recommend for buying spokes? Wheelbuilder.com is quoting about $30 for shipping and that seems pretty high to me.
Thanks in advance.
