DT Swiss would be your best bet in my opinion.

I've ridden primo, shadow, sapim, and dt swiss spokes, and the dt swiss spokes so far feel the stiffest and hold up best for me.

Doubled butted DT Swiss if you can afford it. Should in theory be more durable while being lighter. If you can't afford it, straight gauge DT Swiss would be the next best. Avoid big brands like Primo and Shadow, they tend to be shitty.

seconded on the primo/shadow comment, those are the worst spokes ive ever dealt with

DT swiss is definitely a good choice. Odyssey also makes good spokes and they come in straight gauge and double butted. I've been running odysseys for about a year now and none of them have broken yet
