Wheel Set Opinions - Campy Neutron Ultra v White Industries T11 to Open PRO

Yo guys, doing a build up of a Fondriest X Status - Blue, Dedacciai 16.5 Steel with Campy Athena Silver Grouppo and want some opinions on wheelsets. I have them narrowed down to the Campy Neutron Ultra (via Ribble/Shiny Bike) roughly $650 or the White Industries T11 silver hub to Silver Mavic Open Pro's via Velo-Mine for $590 - The white industries were going to be my first option due to several reasons - Review, Made in USA, Service Ease, Look (silver wheelset w/blue & Chrome frame/Alu Thompson Elite/Athena Silver) but Neutron Ultra's for $70 more might be too good of a deal to pass up. This is for weekend warrior rides, club rides, somewhat ****ty city streets of Seattle on a 220 pound rider who likes to mash on the pedals from time to time.

The THIRD option I have is to get a set of new Campy Record hubs and have the LBS lace them up to a DT Swiss/Mavic Rim....

Anyone that has some time on either of these wheelsets that would like to chime in I would appreciate it. For what its worth my LBS says that campy makes the best wheels hands down and are bombproof. Not sure if the same performance/durability can be said of the T11 to Open Pro's.

Thanks!
