    DT ProLock nipples?

    I know that they are sapose to keep your spoke tention better, but is it realy worth it for 25 cents a piece? Does it work any better?

    Also, which do you think are better for BMX 4X wheels(if that even matters), Marwi spokes, or DT Swiss spokes? I've heard a lot of good things about the DTs, but I don't know much about the Marwis. Any thoughts/comments are welcome!

    In case you were wondering, for the rest of my wheel, I am getting a Odyssey Hazard Lite rim(Chrome 48H), and an Odyssey Hazard Cassette with a 9T one piece driver.

    Thanks a lot!

    My freind has some laced to his Odyssey rim and Shadow hub he likes them there green!, but i dont know that theres much to hate about green nipples, haha (im sure if anyone that doesnt ride reads that, they would laugh)

    And for spokes i would get DT...

    And if you want to get an Odyssey hub and rim why not just get the regular complete wheel and buying a 1pc driver?

    Because when you get the complete wheel you get crap spokes. DT ones dominate them.
