I'm not an Open Pro fan as so many people are; they don't have wear indicators, and (for as crazy as people have claimed me for this one) I think they're noisy. There's something about them that just makes more noise out of road vibrations than any other rim I've tried.
For the same profile and similar weight, I like the DT Swiss RR1.1 double eyelet. The RR1.1 single and double eyelet rims have been renamed the RR415 and RR465 for this year, if you check DT's web site.
I weigh 230 pounds, and with 32 straight 14g spokes these rims make for some very stiff wheels.
