    Hi everyone I'm looking at investing a set of medium profile clincher aero racing wheels. I race mostly on flatish/rolling courses (no mountains, longest hills 2km). I'm not wanting to spend a fortune max $USD 1,800. I have been having a look around and the below list are the ones I have been looking at. I would be interested in people's experence's with any of these wheels or suggestions they have.

    I currently ride Simano RS80 C25 wheels and like them so was leaning towards the WH-7900-C50-CL or WH-RS80-C50 both are heavier wheel sets but I have heard they don't feel heavy when riding on them, do people argee with this? If this is the case would you spend double the money to get the dura-ace wheels or just get the RS80's?
