Recommendations: V-rim WITH eyelets

I'm sure this question has been asked before but, since models change AND manufacturer's quality/reputations vary with time:

Who currently makes the best deep-V 700c rims WITH spoke eyelets? I'm looking for 36-spoke heavy-duty rims.

Thanks!

Mavic CXP33 will give superb service for non-touring road use.

How do you define "best"? Lightest, cheapest, joint quality, strongest, best looking?

Velocity Deep V is a nice rim, well priced too. I dont believe they have eyelets, but the structure of the rim does not make it all that necessary

IRD 30mm has single eyelets but 32 hole is the highest they go. New DT RR 1.2 30mm will have eyelets too but again 32 hole max.

Just get the deep Vs and stop worrying about nothing. I've never heard Deep Vs were weak. In fact the velocity engineers claim 140 kg spoke tension is possible because the rim is no.1 stiff and no.2 there is enough metal around the spoke hole.

No eyelets, but you would use an elliptical washer on the back side. Some rims come with backing-plates. That's what came on my 240gm FIR rims.

Mavic CXP33. Not that many taller rims have eyelets.

Velocity Deep V's, or they now have a Synergy which isn't a deep v rim, but is eyeletted and available in a 29"/700c size.
