I am looking at some new wheels and these Rolf wheels look pretty good. Has anyone used them or can anyone give me some insight?

Haven't ridden em. But i ordered some for a customer of the shop i work at and he hates em...Says they're flexy as hell and he's not a particularly heavy rider(160-170ish) but then again...this guy's one of those "know-it-alls"
From what I have seen of them they are a very raw product. The Edges are quite sharp on the hub flanges for example, Decals are kinda ugly. It's still a very unpolished product. Wait for a second generation set if you want the Rolfs

I have A set of the Vigors for about 6 months with almost 2000 miles on them and they're not flexly at all and I'm A big ridder(was 240 down to 215# ridder 6'3"),they spin real nice,and they are still straight except for the rear has A little hop in the rim that I'll have to fix(one to many pot holes)And they are the my favorites wheelset so far.
I also have A set of custom built wheels(interloc,Ac,WS) that weight about the same as Vigors,but with A lighter box rim.That cost about $450 less then the Rolfs,havn't put too many miles on them yet,but for the price I paid for the custom built
set It is hard to beat them ,If they hold up for awhile.
