I guess that the oval small are for cx-ray, oval large are for cx and the round are for laser/race type of spokes, am I right? Can anyone correct me if I`m wrong?
AFAIK, the nipple washers are suppose to reinforce the rim, carbon ones or alu without eyelets, at the nipple ... so the hole of the washer is always round and not a function of the spokes you are planning to use ... but there is different shapes to adapt to the rim, and it's shape
okr, you are thinking of the washers that go between the spokehead and the hub right? I only knew they had round and oval one's, but your thinking makes sense to me, I would use whatever fits over the midsection of the spoke the best/tightest.
