Front Wheel Hub, Phil Wood or Chris King?

I'm looking to build a new front wheel and am thinking Mavic Open Pro with Phil Wood or Chris King Hubs. What do you think?

I just recently rebuilt my front and rear mavic open pro's with C/k hubs.
Seem like a really nice product I replaced my D/A hubs with these.
Quite honest I do not see a real big difference except for the buzz sound when your coasting
Maybe a little smoother but I cant' swear to that.

Now on the rear I do have to say it engages a heck of alot faster than the D/A
