    I've had a set of the harden rim version from late 2008. I've had no issues with the wheels at all. The 36-star ratchet upgrade and regular servicing (~twice a year) has keep me pretty happy.

    I know when I bought these, I asked for the 2009 version, which apparently did not have the soft rims. I've put these things through hell with no issues, so I'm pretty sure they are not the soft ones. I'm not sure how to tell the difference.

    I can tell a pretty big difference in the rim hardness on them. My 2010s have been put through the ringer and are still super solid, no dents (knock on wood) I am gonna put them on my Double for this year and get a new pair for my new DH bike since it moves over to 150mm rear.

    I love the wheels primarily because I havent had to touch them all year. No hub, bearing, or rim issues. Plus the red is b!tch!n looking

    I've been riding the 440fr hubs off and on since 2006 I think. I spent all last year on them at Diablo, Blue Mountain, and Plattekill (and some AM riding believe it or not). Zero issues. They've out-survived a few wheel builds.

    The 36 point upgrade was cheap and great to have. Worthy.

    Moving to the rear 135x10 RWS thru-bolt was also a nice upgrade (had standard QR before).

    I hear the DT's 440 are very reliable but have had no experience with them, but if reliability is what you're looking for, I won't get tired of recommending Hadley's.
