Looking at doing a custom wheelset for a Santa Cruz Superlight 29er. Want to go with the Hope Pro 2 EVO hubs for front and rear. HOWEVER, having owned WTB superduty running on the maxles on my Nomad I remember that not all hubs work well with the RS front maxle. Also experienced the same play issue on a Tallboy with a Reba and that same WTB hub. Remember when I built up custom wheels for my Nomad back in 2010 I did not go with the Hope Pro 2 (non evo) because there were issues with folks getting a tight fit between the RS Maxle set ups and the hope front hubs. I do know that the Santa Cruz Superlight 29er I saw at my LBS is using a spacer on the outside of the hub which I think is to keep everything on the 15mm thru Shimano XT hub flush and tight with the maxle. Any feedback would be awesome.
