Depends on what you're looking for. Why choose a 46 mm depth, over a 58 or 65?

Thinking 46 as a good all around compromise. Good for circuits and hilly roads also.

They're very good, some of the best wheels i've ever ridden. PM me if you're looking for some tubular ones.

These are my daily wheels and I have no problems with them. A 36t freehub ratchet upgrade halves engagement angle and is a worthy upgrade. DT240-quivalent hubs are good, there's room for wider spoke bracing angles but I have no complaints about stiffness even with only 20/16 spokes. Good with 25mm tires, I suspect you will get lightbulb profile with 28mm tires.

The DT hub internals are one of the things attracting me to these wheels. The other factor is that Reynolds reckons they have a bigger sweet spot; they provide more benefit more of the time. I'd be running 25mm tyres max; the wheels are to go on a Tarmac SL3 and, strictly speaking, I'm not sure I'm meant to run more than 23mm. It's not one of the frames Zipp list as being an issue for 303s so, hopefully, should be ok with the Aeros.
Appreciate your input; thanks.

i'm 67kg and i ride the Aero 72 with my BMC TMR02. did a 100 miles century with these bad boys plus some climbs. they are stiff and doesn't disappoint. hubs rolls so sweet and quiet.. it's even quieter than my 2 mates' Bora Ultra 35 & 50. the only time ppl hear me coming is when i sprint and you can hear the 72 slice through the wind. my mates says it sounds like a truck coming. oh and i'm running it with veloflex sprinter tubs.. freaking love them. stopping power is great too and no complaints.
