Awesome comparison, very good information and details. I was wondering about the 10R being better than the 1R. The pictures suggested a lower end model to me (fixed cables vs removable cables for starters). I wasn't thinking to buy the 10R and your observations just confirm my initial hunch.
For people who do not own the 1R and may not be able to afford it, do you think the 10R is similar enough to meet their desires?
I feel like they were trying to emulate the 1r as much as possible, which I think they did a decent job at. The street prices of both could sway my opinion one way or another as far as saying whether or not it would worth buying in lieu of the 1r. At MSRP, $200 vs. $300, I think the 1r is worth the premium. BTW, the 10r I have has a detachable cable.
