I'm about to buy a Zipp 303 tubular wheelset. Its a pretty good deal, but it is a 2002 model. Any major differences between the two model years? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

I know the 2002 model has better hubs than the 2001. I think the 2003 model may have a viscoelastic constrained layer technology in the rim. I think they only introduced that this year (not in 2002), and it supposedly provides more comfort.

I think the main difference will be in the spokes. If I remember correctely, Zipp changed from DT Swiss spokes in 02 to Sapim x-ray spokes in 03.
