Who distribute Pillar in the U.K, they do Megalite.

I do think asking what is Megalite is a reasonable question - this is the wheelbuilding thread afterall where people can ask questions and advice like that.

Yeah! He must be sadly out of touch to assume you don't know about Google.

i sometimes think i'm the KING of google, being able to find an answer to anything super-quick. i mustve had a brain fart then, as it didnt even occur to me.
i shouldve known it was a pillar spoke anyway, if it's not sapim (cx-ray) and it's not dt (aerolite), what's left? marwi? and... pillar.

Google is where I went to find the answer (seeing as I was looking it up anyway to find out for myself) :D

Stiffness proportional to weight. There's only so much you can do with the same material in this case.
