What's all this double butted shit I'm hearing about?

I just get spokes depending on what colour I want and as long as they're from a dependable company

when you get a new wheel/spokes you have to break them in, then get it trued again and its solid

Ti spokes are unlikely to bend, you're right. It's the high risk of them snapping that I'd worry about.
