להל"ן ציטוט לשאלת השוואה בין גאסטרא 2003 ל
שנשאלה Caution 2004
בפורום לפני מספר ימים
ומכיוון שבארץ הוא עדיין חדש החלטתי להעביר לכם את המידע הנ"ל
חשוב להדגיש שהמחיר בארה"ב לשני העפיפונים הנ"ל הוא זהה או שהקאושן יותר יקר
I have flown the gaastra gxr 2003(used to have also) and seen the proto caution 04, and if i honestly had to make a choice i'd go 100% for the caution. The 04 looks very very good and the le goes all the way to the edge, where in the gaastra its just curved there - the last strut on the very end of the caution is part of the LE. The caution also comes with some new material of bladders that reduce defects and prolong life, the kite was extremely light and was very well built i was thoroughly impressed by it.
Ofcourse the GXR for 2004 is also due to be out and I have yet to see that kite in anything but pictures, i dont know what new 'feature' the new gxr has.
If you are a beginner it really depends on how long you want to keep your kite, usually your first kite will become thrashed so you might want to get a good deal on an 03 gxr if you can, otherwise if they are in the same price range i'd definitely go for the 04 caution.
By the way the cautions and GXR are moderate to high aspect kites and arent supposedly as easy to learn as, say a G-Spot, personally i cant tell a damn difference they are all the same to me just keep it on the edge of the window and dont overfly.
