Well I put a life time warranty against fatigue failures on mine so hunt should have more confidence in there wheels. I ship "free" to the US too.

While I don't break my wheels in holes other have. I have a constant stream of wheels that have been bashed for repair and they must have taken a really big impact. The roads in the u. K have got that bad you really should ride a mtb on the road. Some people colnago hit holes heavy whereas other hit the same hole light. It has little to do with rider weight either.

Everything even bora's can break if the tyre bottoms out.

Anyone buy wheels from http://www.velomine.com/? My son bought some wheels with Ultegra hubs, DT spokes, and Velocity Quill rims, cheaper than I could have built these wheels myself. They were a little out of true out of the box and appeared to be machine built because they had hex head spoke nipples.

I have, mine were overtensioned but they worked. My friend has bought a few of those wheels in particular. He's broken a few spokes and now usually had them retensioned.
