Never had to use the customer service but the owner stands by his products from previous reviews I've read which is why I decided to go with them

This is my plan... started last winter with the 270's at a closeout price. The 171 rear arrived today from bm0p700f and I'm impressed with the quality. Ideal purchase all the way around.
Now.. for the front. I'm a fitness rider at 220 lbs who ran 24H on the fronts of my new road bikes this summer.. 3200+ miles. The heavier dated Shimano hub laced radial and a Novatech 85 grm at 1x with Lasers heads out.. that another lacing experiment of mine. They'll be turned in this winter.
Brandon from BHS replied all of the front hubs can be radial laced... with 2x preferred on 24H and 20H a better candidate for radial. I've considered a 20H front.. my rationale is this: granted I'm somewhat heavy for a 20H front yet I do very little peddling while standing... only recently doing such on steeper grades. Mostly I'm a flat land rider. I run a 18-10 on one rear with near equal tension sides. Another MTB is triplet rear.. 16-8.. both are solid at my weight.
Anyone running 20H front with a heavier load like mine in a lightweight hub? Given a front does around half the load of a rear... seems to me a 20H KinLin 270 with a suitable hub should be fine for my purpose. I ride flat bars also.. no drops for me.
While not a true weight weenie.. IMO that term is relative to the situation the wheels are employed. Lighter is of course faster and more enjoyable to ride.. the thought of climbing back onto the winter rider for the 5 month hard water season on that slower bike is a big change. I enjoy building my own wheels.. I'm a fitness rider and have found over the yrs the lower spoke counts work fine. Quibbling about wheel weight and lower spoke counts if mostly recreational pursuit.. I find it fun.

My rear is 28H. 18-10... that wasn't clear by my post.
Otherwise.. live and let live.
I'm new to the forum, want to upgrade my CAAD10 - ultegra,
I'm looking for a wheel set to replace my Mavic Aksiums, (I'm 82 kg / 1.93m)
My requirements are:
- aluminium clinchers
- campagnolo compatible (I plan to change from ultegra to chorus)
- < 500,- Euro
- weight < 1550 g (of course lighter is better!)
- robust / durable
Options I found:
- Soul S 2.0 (1300 gr ), but I get the impression they 're not too suitable for daily use / training
- Soul S 3.0 (1550 gr)
- Campagnolo Zonda (1550 gr)
- Campagnolo Neutron Ultra (1480 gr) just a bit over budget
-american classic sprint 350 (1410 gr)
does anyone have experience with any of these:

they seem reasonably priced and lightweight.
Other suggestions are welcome!
Both campagnolo sets seem to have a very good reputation, and they can be bought almost anywhere, which is an advantage over the Souls.
Thanks for advice!
