Reynolds wheelset replacement -need advice

My 2011/2012 Reynolds dv3k carbon clincher wheelset has been damaged beyond repair. Thankfully, I purchased the assurance program and can get a new wheelset now.

Here are the options currently being offered to me by the rep via email:

Get the assaults from the same year. Also 46mm but lighter than the dv3k he says.

Or wait until may/June for the 2014 assaults since they're on back order. But I can't wait, I'll be past my first A races by then.

Or get something of equivalent replacement value. Tubulars assaults are an option too.

So anyway, not sure how the assaults actually compare to the dv3k. Including possible differences among hubs and spokes.

I could try tubulars if I'm getting more bang for the exchange.
Or even request another option?
I'm a sprinter racing p/1/2.
