Decided to try my hand and tying and soldering the NDS to improve the stiffness. They turned out pretty nice, if I do say so myself:) And they do look a lot my my Nemesis pair when on the bike.
Don't have the numbers right in front of me, but I believe rims were 507 and 510g each.
Can you post some pics of your wheels? Is the hard anodized finish a black or grey look?
I will probably get the same spokes and use the DT Swiss 240s hubs.

The TK540 as Ergot said is an excellent rim. It is bloodly suberb in fact but 540g in weight.
They're usually OE rims for touring bikes or hybrid bikes, very cheap yet dependable, but may not be easy to acquire depending on the local distributor.

The Pacenti rim only weighs ~430g though. If you are planning to use the wheels for general road riding, then the PL23 seems like the way to go... with lots of light spokes.
I really like this color, and I am happy with the way the gold alloy nips work as well. And I think the dirt from the rain/snow squalls on my ride also works with the rims

These rims don't have the nicest finish you'll ever see and aren't 100% period correct in terms of classic box shape. With that said though, they're extremely cheap and very well proven. They're great for all sorts of uses including mid-weight touring. My own experiences have been very positive.

Just ordered a pair of these rims to lace up to Dura Ace 32h hubs. Will be replacing Mavic CXP-22 rims.
I will post some weights & pictures when i get them.
555 & 561g. Advertised @ 460g.
Not happy. Sent an email off, but dont know if i can be bothered sending them back.
I may try drilling holes inside the rim between spokes holes to get some weight down.
