Durability of ShamalSpiderman

Hey, i am able to get a set of Shamals REALLY cheap and was kind of curious about them. I have actually been riding just a front one for about a month now and have had no problems with it (to and from central park in NYC and in the park itself). I have a proton as a rear wheel.
I was wondering if anyone has any problems/concerns about using it as my everyday wheelset. I don't race. I know it is a strong wheel because of the deep reem but anyone have any problems with spoke breakage etc? I am about 6'0" and 175 and have never had problems with my wheels. Thanks for the input.
