Anybody used them?
Is it true that 28 straight pull spokes give a stronger wheel than 36 J-bend spokes?

My Spada frontwheel is stiff enough.(75kg) But i only tested it 50km.-too much salt on the roads :( .
Spadas front hub is only 24hole.Very smooth bearings. When you hold the wheel in your hands and accelerate it, it runs and runs and runs :D But I dont know whether it is stronger than a 36spoked wheel.
