|I am thinking about a purchase of some used 440's. Anyone know if the spokes are proprietary?|

Zipp doesn't require significantly special spokes. Depending on the year of the 440s they are either a regular j bend spoke or a straight pull spoke, most likely from DTSwiss or Sapim. Although availability of straight pull spokes can be spotty at LBS's. Last I looked, Branford Bike sold sets of 3 of each size spoke for Zipp wheelsets for a fair price - might be worth having on hand.
