They are nicely made hubs. Are the Pro 3's newer than these or a different design?

Yeah, Pro3 are non disc. The sound, just from turning the freehub in my hands, is awesome!

What rim though? Mavic would be a solid and safe bet, but I dont want to rule out other makes just because Mavic is a safe bet, albeit very good though.

What do you reckon then, XC use, nothing extreme, but I want something nice to spoke up to these hubs.

Pro IIIs are non-disc.

Evos are forged before being machined and should be less likely to crack at the flanges.

Rims?

UST Mavics for hubs this good. Sorry. Wouldn't use anything else.

I love Hope hubs :D Only problem I've ever had was a rear getting glooped up after a snow/mud/grit/water ride. Easy to sort by watching the superb Hope online guides 8)

Wor lass has a set of Pro II evo's on Stans Crests. The rims are a bit pricey, but good, especially if you're going tubeless
