whats the next best freewheel after white industries eno?

hey,

i'm shopping around for a ss freewheel and i'm wondering if you guys have any suggestions.
i know the eno is superior, but i simply don't have the $$
what other options are there that are both reliable and easy on the wallet?

thanks!

Not equals as far as long term durability goes to WI's, but Shimano's and ACS's mid-range freewheels (not the cheapest ones) are up to muster for everyday use.

My ACS crossfire lasted a season of cross, which is probably like five years street time.

Forgot to mention, WI freewheels are fattys on the scale compared to all the others. *All* is not an overstatement.

I have one in 17t but only did a few miles on it before I went to fixed. My others are all WI freewheels, it didn't seem as smooth as those, but low miles = tough to really tell.

WI freewheels seem pretty great, they even look nice. Alas, my funds have some limitations.

Sounds great, I think I'll try the deluxe model.
