Best rims for Phil Wood track hubs

Building a wheel set for the beater and i want to know what rim i should lace my hubs to, i know i could get open pros and be set but im looking for something lighter to compensate for the hubs. Considering Velocity or H-plus-son just not sure on models

Tl;Dr Need a light and durable rim to lace my phil hubs to

Phil's on a beater, huh? Maybe you should get some Lightweights and call it a day.

phil to mavic op.
get it built properly. they can be bullet proof wheels.
plus side. open pro's are cheap to replace and will never go disco

but lacing them to aerospokes or even a tri spoke would be wicked

Alex Semi Aero……someone please buy my wheels; they're sitting around being neglected. On a serious note, I really like my Stans Alpha 400. They're light and tough as nails.

Just laced some to hard ano TB14 last night. Third set of wheels like this. Absolutely love this rim!
