The spec said a 3.6gr weight for 260mm, i just wondering to see a real weight.
And if someone have build with these, for the moment how the wheel feels and if they get problem with the spokes.
For the moment i have just find one place to buy these, this is on ebay and they came at about 2.20$ per spoke shipping included.
fwiw I'll be using Kinlin XR300 rims and BHS hubs. I wanted to build on components I am comfortable with, so I can really dig into them when I test them out.
I've used these spokes on 38mm carbon rims, since the rims are stiff and I'm light(63kg), I don't feel the spokes make the wheels less strong or stiff. Aero360s are only slightly thinner than Aero424/CX-Ray/Aerolite, so I don't think the performance will be significantly different. The weight saving is only 20~30g for a set of wheels.
I bought the spokes from the Ebay seller in Taiwan.
I have a couple hundred miles in with these spokes and I have no complaints, They are very easy to build with, and have held up to potholes, gravel, and hard sprinting and climbing. I'm actually thinking about using these spokes for a custom farsport clincher build...
424 is great, and well priced, but the 360 I think is a nicer more aero shape. the shape is smoother, 424s are more a flat bladed spoke with beveled edges almost.
CN/Mac spokes overall are great quality ive found, at least as good as sapim.
The ebay seller you guys are referring to is great too. handling time is a bit annoying but shipping is fast and being able to get any length odd/even is great.

I asked Good886 (ebay user), he only carries the Aero424 in straight pull.
Honestly I think this is pretty good outcome from the spoke perspective. Going to build a new wheel set now with 28 rear (would just build a rear, but I found a new hub set I want to try as well). Figure I'll just swap out the rear spokes on the old set (given the abuse, most of them have probably seen undue stress) with 424s and sell them to somebody a little bit lighter than me
