Mavic Open Pro vs Open Elite

Hi all,

I build wheels for my winter bike using Mavic Open Pro 32h rims. I've worn down my current rims and in the course of shopping for new ones I came across Mavic 'Open Elite' 32h rims. The first thing I noticed is that they're much cheaper than the Open Pro rims! I'm not really bothered about weight, stiffness, performance etc being worse than the Pro's. My question is, does anyone know if the Elite rims measure up differently in any way to the Pro's, such that it would affect the spoke length in the wheel build? I'd be sticking with the same hubs. Thanks.
