DT swiss track hubs compared to other hubs you can mention

Does anyone know about DT Swiss track hubs?
How competitive is it compared to Shimano, Miche, Campagnolo and Etc.
Like for example the weight, durability, and smoothness

White industries, adopted a Splined cog interface so you can easily change your cog
as the track you are competing on requires on the day.

You a Matched sprint or Persuit racer?

What exactly are you looking for? What kind of bike are you using it on? Does the hub need to be Keirin certified?

More information is necessary to give you a good response.

Just for the sake of argument, though: at a high price point, you are getting a good product. The main reason to go one direction or the other is for threading to match the sprockets you already have (IE, Italian/English) or because one brand offers a shell with hole counts you want. If you don't need NJS certification, your options open up greatly.

I don't need any info aside from its quality and performance it's. The price doesn't matter I just wanna know this brand of track hub.
better if it's njs approved cause I might use it as a my custom racing hub

NJS is for the Professional Keirin , which is Bet on like horse races.. it to equalize the bikes,
to have the races about the riders, no bike advantages.

Like loose ball hubs? Campag and Dura Ace

Seen what the Pros used At the Ghent 6 day series? ever gone there??

Radial cartridge bearing hubs from Phil Wood Company offer the advantage of being strong and the bearings are standard types.
so high marks on durability.. IDK weights, Look that up, yourself.

At least its not another street fixie.. end of opinion .. not a track racer..
