Rear Axle Chat

So I'm building up a new wheel set for my Carbon Jet 9.   

It has a standard 135 rear as its a 2014 and not the RDO.   

I'm going with Hope Rear - and I've used their bolt in axle in the past and was going to use that with this set as I like to torque it and get it exact every time.  Well when scrolling the hope site I see they now have a 10mm axle that works like a quick release, but is a solid axle.   

So my question is, if you were building the set which would you go with?   

Bolt in rear, or the solid 10mm.  Don't really want the standard Q/R so not really an option.  I understand that if I choose the 10mm "Thru" I'll have to buy an axle, but that American Classic one looks snazzy. 

Thanks as always,

Brad

Yeah so thats essentially the same thing as AC.   

But still wondering if I should go that route or the bolt in.

I use the RWS and I like them.  You can really tighten them down and still get them off without tools.

I have the RWS and it's rock solid.

So I guess stiffness should be the same. The only difference would be not requiring tools to undo the rear wheel. Think I'll stick with bolt on for now unless someone knows some other advantage.

Bolt on certainly looks cleaner than anything with a lever sticking out...
