Since my rear wheel died I am considering getting some aero wheels.
I found Profile Design 38/TwentyFour for $1200 and weigh about the same as my current aluminum wheels.
Reynolds Assault SLG look another good option.
A friend of mine recommended these also. Any other to consider? Would like to avoid buying from Chinese dealers unless there is a good reason to do so.

I was in the same predicement as you and I spent several months researching a wheelset ... really wanted 50mm aero but ....

I ended up getting HED Belgium Plus rims with Chris King R45 hubs (ceramic bearing upgrade) with Sapiem C-XRay spokes

not the lightest .... not the most aero, but tubeless ready and I'm flying on these .... very solid wheels and they are as true as the day I bought them .... well pleased.... I'm running tubeless now but before tubeless, I used Specialized Turbo Cottons with latex tubes .... very fast especially on hills

Velomine has Bora One Tubulars in the 50mm depth on sale for 999 a set. http://www.velomine.com/index.php?main_ ... ts_id=3671

Im not affiliated with them. I have had great experience buying all my campy components from them. Ben is great

You can find HED Jets (alloy with a carbon fairing) but one of the best aerodynamically for around that.

Nope. Not Flo Wheels.

OP, check out the Flo Wheels. They are quality.
