Open Pro Questions

Hi. I need to replace my rear rim (Sun CR18) and was suggested by my LBS to go with the Mavic Open Sport. I went over to the Mavic site and I see that the Open Pro is a much better rim, though. the Mavic website failed to answer my questions, though and I
was wondering if someone here can:
1.) Is there a 36H(touring) rim that is a step up from the quality of the Open Sport and not as expensive as the Open Pro? 2.) Does the Open Pro come in 36H?
Which other 36H rims should I ask about at my LBS?
A Specialized, sealed hub is going on the new wheel.
