XD laser has new style control systems which most will agree are easier to race with. So kicker, downhaul, outhall. GXD is the Paul Goodison endorsed version. There may be other small differences in spec but the controls are the big part. Oh aswell, nobody races with anything less than XD as far as I'm aware.
