Velomax Orion Comp vs Ksyriums SSC. Any opinions?..Bruno S

Debating between these two wheelsets. About the same weight but very different in construction. Must decide today. As of right now I am leaning towards the Velomax but would appreciate any comments about either wheels.

BTW I know that Open Pro / DA or Record are as good and cheaper but I already have those.

I've wrenched on several multi-day rides and work in a shop part-time. I've yet to see a broken Ksyrium but have seen a couple of Velomax wheels with broken spokes. Not a good sign considering there are far more Ksyriums out there than Velomax wheels. Personally, I'd go with Campy. I've got Nucleons and haven't had any problems, even when I use them on my 'cross bike. The Campy 9 speed cassette works just fine with my DuraAce transmission.
Thanks..Bruno S

Decided on the Ksyriums. Other also people mentioned that velomax was not as bomb proof.
