Roval CLX braking performance question

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Roval CLX braking performance question

I'm thinking about buying a dedicated climbing wheelset and I have my eyes on the Roval CLX 32 set. Light, aero, wide, not extremely expensive.

Any first-hand experience regarding this set would be welcomed. Especially about braking performance and lateral stiffness.

I have great concerns about braking performance. I've only tried zipp nsw, mavic cosmic pro carbon sl and reynolds wheels so far. Out of these, I was impressed with the new zipp showstopper performance and I think mavic is also pretty good in dry conditions. With reynolds, I found that braking was "fair" in dry conditions and terrible in damp / wet. How are the rovals clx wheels compare to these brands in dry and wet?
