I am also considering Zipp 404s and waiting on the new Dura Ace 9100 c40's. Figured I could save ~$800 on the HIEs though.

Thanks for any thoughts on the matter!
By the way, if you are into US made (or at least assembled) wheels at better prices than Zipp but with more of a reputation than HIE, you might look at Mercury wheels.

Competitive Cyclist AKA Backcountry.com carries them and they are on sale right now.

I believe Mercury and Backcountry.com are based out of Salt Lake City too.
