I had a vortex and this is nothing but a wilson vortex, the 1 less x's means nothing it is not unique in any way. That is just a way to say it is different than the vortex.
The difference is it is mainstream and highly advertised by Wilson something vortex could not due. It is the open pattern that makes it play the way it does.
