Got a set in January from Lickton's Bike Shop.
They are relatively heavy rims, built with 36 hole rear hub I wanted a heavy duty training wheel. (They also have 32 hole). They are a little dated in technology, but I like them for something different.
I've had no problems/ no creaks. Recommend you look at the rim section on the Lickton's web site. They will build them if you want.
Finish isn't very good......northcoast

I have some 32 hole front and back. Training wheels. Cracks in the anodizing under the clear coat. You can not feel it with your finger, but you can see it. I was assured by the Campy rep that the aluminum is anodized first in long sections and then rolled into rims. The rolling causes cracks in the finish that is still safe.

Even so I makes me a little wary. I like the rims of the Neutrons better. They seem to be basically the same except for black finish.

To be fair though, they have been straight, non-creaking, only a few grams more than OP's and solid. I'm 185bs.
