Nice spokes. I wish they'd come down in price though in view of high quality SAPIM spokes of late. Though these have very hard to perceive butted transitions compared to the SAPIM equivalent. Not sure if that makes a diff since spokes fail at the hook anyway.

DT Swiss Competition Spokes

I only use DT for any wheels that I build. Their strength and quality is better than anything else out there. Have yet to break one.

Pros: Great strength and consistency.

Cons: Can get expensive depending on build.

Gold Standard

Ive built up a few wheels with these spokes and so far dont have a bad thing to say about them. They are strong, light, cheap, and come in black. You cant go wrong with these if you are building a burly DH wheel or a light weight road wheel

Pros: Strong, cheap, high strength, come in black

Cons: none

DT Competition Spokes

Double butted, fairly lightweight spokes.

Pros: Lighter than SG spokes, spokes adds a litter more give or lateral flex to wheel if that is what you like

Cons: More expensive than SG spokes at only 20 so grams less, not as stiff or strong as SG spokes, comes loose easier than SG as well.

Great Spokes

Built up a new 650B wheelset with these, and they are still holding true after 3 months of AM riding.

trustworthy spokes without a weight penalty

I've always run the Competition spokes from DT and haven't ever regretted it. Even after getting gnarly chain suck between the cassette and spokes and gouging them up they still ride on for many many miles afterwards.

Pros: Double butted, lightweight, some color choices, strength, longevity.

Cons: zero

Good sturdy spokes. Bought these for the wheels on my trail bike. Work great, and none have broken

Nice light but tough spoke. When building up a wheel with these you get some of the benifits of a lighter spoke with the benifits of a heavier spoke. Basically a great all around spoke.

Bomber spokes, I use them on everything

As a lightweight (140 or so) rider, I use these on all my wheel builds, and I've never broke one. For their price and weight, they are awesome spokes in my opinion.

Pros: Tough, relatively lightweight, strong

Cons: not aero or superlight - if that's your bag.

This was my first time used butted spokes on a build, and I have to say, they are just as strong as any straight gauge I've used. These found a home on my front wheel which I abuse pretty hard and it has stayed true as can be.

DT Competiton Spokes

Top notch spokes.
Just finished lacing some Deep V's to Shimano's new 4600 Series HUB's came out like a champ.. excellent spoke for the job. I don't think I will use anything else but DT.

Pros: Quality
Uniformity
Double Butted

Cons: NONE

I used these double-butted spokes as part of a rear single speed wheel build, and in months of use they have not failed in a single way. With spoke thread prep all the nipples threaded on perfectly, and have yet to loosen and ruin the overall tension of the wheel. The setup has taken some pretty big hits with all spokes at moderate tension and nothing has broken. Overall, I believe these to be an extremely dependable spoke option.

Pros: Strength
Reliability
Accurate spoke lengths every time

Cons: Weight

It would be hard to beat the Competitions for price & durability. Alpines, maybe, but more expensive? Competition Spokes from DT are simply put: my go to for most builds. The price is competitive, I have never had a quality issue with anything DT, they are excellent to work with & the butting makes for such a strong, supple & very durable wheel. When in the shop I always recommend these to most people who wish to build any type of wheelset.

Pros: Butted
Strong
Resilient
Good Cost
Perfectly Made

Cons: None

My first choice for spokes when building a wheel due to quality and consistency. Really, there's no other choice for me.

Pros: Quality.

Cons: The black paint has come off some.

These are the only spokes I would ever buy. They take terrific beatings and though you may eventually get one to break it won't be easy

Pros: Dependable, durable, trustworthy, light, strong, a great value indeed

Cons: nope

Haven't had much go wrong with dt swiss. This was my first purchase of black spokes and they have held up great. A little pricey but still worth it in my opinion. Haven;t had to re-true yet.

Like the black spokes

I really like the look of the black spokes. They make it look like your wheels are spinning faster than they actually are.

Pros: Quality, color, durability.

Cons: Price.

Spoke by the Best

Not too much to say here. Spokes that are well made, for a decent price. No issues.

Pros: Spokes that are well made, and don't cost a fortune.

Cons: Can't tell if they are twisted, but that is true of any non bladed spokes.
