Araya RB-J1's

I found a pair of Araya RBJ1's and profile hubs (cassette). Could somebody tell me if the RIMS are any good because it sounds like they are from Japan and i like American made parts with some exceptions. I have also heard the some pros use them too. So are they any good for under 200 bucks for the whole deal. Thanks.

No offense, but when it comes to bicycles, you'll have a hard time being patriotic. Not only that, but even American made components are sourced from foreign materials.
