Gonna be getting some spokes soon, I've built with Sapim CR-RAY and DT AEROLITE before and personally prefer the CX-RAY and I'm interested with the Pillar PSR X-TRA1420, anyone have experiences with those?

I've used the Pillar X-TRA 1420 spokes on a few wheelbuilds. Weight is very similar to CX-Ray and aerolite. Haven't broken one (nor have I broken any other spoke) so I guess their strength is at least on-par. Much cheaper than CX-Ray and aerolite, a few builders I've spoken to say it's pretty much the same spoke.
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)
