I agree that the Atom boom is a very good wheel and feel better than the MPC black magic. My comparison test on a semi rough road of the TLTF Halo and the Atom Boom led me to choose the Atom boom for a race, they felt better for roll and grip. I believe because the Halo has a larger hub with less urethane for the road conditions I was on. I can't say the Atom boom is better than the Matter One Twenty Five. The Matters last forever and still perform as one of the best wheels. I haven't tried the GI3 but my hunch is I'd like them even better as I prefer the 22mm wheel.

As for feel the Mota wheels feel dead compared to others but for $13 it's tough to complain. I like reely's review of the TLTF Momentum wheel, that sounds like a winner for the price.
