Default going with twisted spokes on stock wheels

Im thinking about have my stock wheels laced with buchanan S/S Diamond spokes. Anyone ever do anything like this? buchanan makes some nice spokes I hope this will not make the 21 inch wheel weak Im sure the stock spokes are stronger. www.buchananspokes.net

I know Buchanans does good work. I have also seen many many wheels with twisted spokes experience broken spokes. Do they guarantee those twisted spokes?

I have nothing but good things to say about Buchanans. They are all i use when i lace or relace a wheel. You'll be satisfied with thier products.
