Spinergy Rev X vs. Flashpoint 60. Which are more aero?

I'm doing a short, rolling time trial and have both sets of wheels at my disposal. Does anyone know, or have anecdotal evidence with regard to which set of wheels are more aero than the other? Websites with this info? Thanks...

FYI, the FP 60s are basically a cheaper and heavier Zipp 404 (60mm deep carbon rim w/ bladed spokes).
The Flashpoints should be faster. If you can find an older Tour test (the German bike magazine), they had data on the Zipps and Spinergys. The spinergy wheels were not very aero, from what I remember. They *look* aero, but the spokes really aren't, and the shape of the rim wasn't optimal either, having a sharp trailing edge rather than ovalized. The zipps, otoh, always test out near the top of the bunch, depending on rim depth.
