Appreciate explanations of your answer--for my understanding.
If "life of spoke" is what you want, then get the heavier single butted spokes. But because they are heavier gauge, you won't be able to tension them as highly. In theory, you may need to true them a bit more often than if the wheel were built with the thinner double butted spokes.
