|MA 3's are so much cheaper then the Open Pro's but will they hold up? Im 185lbs and ride almost everything on my cross bike.
Any other suggestions?

|both equally strong, OP is just lighter and actually alittle stronger. But think about this....riding everything on a cross wheel, therefore you will kill rims fairly fast, so then it is alot cheaper to replace.|

|at 210 lbs, and dishing out regular abuse, including a mixed XC commute on the MA3s, I can vouch for them both. Not had to true either in a year of hard riding (obviously well-build in the first place), not lost a spoke either - in short, both faultless.
Can I tell the difference in weight on the bike? Not at all. Only other difference is I think the OPs look a little nicer, esp in ceramic, but that's it.
I'd say you can't go wrong with either - get the ones that best suit your budget/taste.
