Alex da28 or Sun Swift Rims

Wheel/rim suggestion threads are all too common in this forum, but I did search, I promise. I also searched a couple years ago when I built up a set of 36h/36h Velocity Deep V's which are still true and going strong, thanks for the help.

I want to build a 28h/32h set mostly for races (placebo effect), and to build a different spoke pattern (hybrid crow's foot). I am interested in the Alexrims da28 or Sun Swift deep-sectioned rims b/c of price and would like input on those rims only. Input/opinions on Velocity deep-V, aerohead, fusion, Mavic OP, CXP33, Weinmann dp18, etc. not needed, those are already ruled out.

6'0" and 210lbs, good roads, these would be low(ish) mileage wheels, thanks.

EDIT: Kinlin rims are also an option it seems...
