I was planning on building my first wheel with the strongest spokes I could find. I had thought that the DT Swiss Alpine III Triple Butted were among the toughest, but a mech at the lbs tells me that I don't need triple butted, and the only thing they're good for is to have strength, while reducing weight.
I'm new to this game... and I'm getting different opinions which doesn't help.
Please, wheel builders chime in. Tell me, if weight was no matter (which it isn't, I weigh 250 lbs), what is the strongest spoke money can buy? (errr.. within reason, I'm not ready to build my first wheel with titanium).
edit: mtb, rear wheel.
