I had a set of these rims on a wheelset that I built with 14 g DT 3x onto Gipiemme LF hubs. Used them somewhat sparingly as a clincher set for the Hi-E Cosmopolitan which weighed around 16 lbs. I weigh 125. It was a fine climbing wheel, requiring a bit more touch-up truing than most, but the crowning blow was when the Gipiemme rear hub had a 2-spoke-sized flange piece pull off. Still have the front wheel somewhere.
