I voted Ultegra because you already have it. The possible benefits of the other choices IMO don't justifiying buying a new hub.

For now they did not; there are other things to spend money on which are more pressing concerns, and the Ultegra hub is every bit as shiny as a King or Phil. I can hardly wait until Monday when I get to roll the new wheelset on my commute to work. I'm building the SON28 front on Sunday as a teaching session with one of my rando buddies.

Dang! Almost perfect wheel build...

True.
Round.
Centered (laterally).
No pinging or straining when I test rode them.

Got out to the main road this morning and realized what I forgot to put back on: my wheel magnet!
