Odyssey 7K, Reloader freecoaster

Anyone have experience with either the 7k rims or the updated sealed Reloader freecoaster? I'm building up a new wheelset for my flatland bike and I'm shopping around for parts. My Nankai has treated me great for years, but the wheels are beefy 48-hole throwbacks from the days when I only had one bike for street and flat.

What about Duralektras? How's braking on the hard anodized finish? Almost as good as chrome? Almost as bad as regular anodized? Worth the extra bucks? Any other suggestions / experience with relatively lightweight wheels?

I did look at www.bmx-test.com and neither the 7Ks nor the Reloader had been reviewed, that's why I'm posting here. =)
