Used Z4(pre-dimpled) or new 404?

I'm looking for new wheels, and the dealer has shown me a pait of excellent used Zipp Z4, of pre_dimpled rims vintage. The price is about same as a brand new 404 with dimpled rims. Mind you, when I said excellent condition, I don't mean used but like new. I know the previous owner, and he takes very good care of his bikes. What do you guys think?

If they cost the same, what's the question? New wheels, warranty, no possible skeletons. Sounds easy to me.

So, it looks like the Z4 is a 404 with ceramic bearings?

Get the new 404s for the reasons UT stated.
