HP PLUS SONs - where to get them

well each of the keywords is too small for me to do a forum search =**(.

anyone know where to get them? I'm located in the SF Bay Area if any shops have it local.

Also, any experience on these? In particular, i'm looking for a built rear wheel, with a decent hub (formula is fine)

How spendy are they? I've seen them before, but never knew how much.

Zipp 303 - $700/rim. Nearly the same depth despite the obvious weight penalty on the H+ rim.

That's so crazy for rims alone. I know there are those that buy zipp, hed, etc for way more, but no thanks for me. I splurged on some velocitys a couple years back on one of my rides, but even those were only like 100 (at the time) for the rims.

i think i might order one for my rear wheel since i am building up a set of wheels.
It's for my leader 721. what color do you guys think? I might go with gold since i have gold sugino cranks.

560 gr per rim which is what the Deep V weighs. Not bad for a 42mm profile.

42mm is basically just old campy shamal rim depth or gipieeme knockoff techno 416's. Except these rims are proably new shyzor intended for the hipster crowd.
