I've only test rode "high end" European bikes. So I have limited comparison experience. But the few I've ridden unless (crit style) would be difficult to tell the difference from each other and the Ironman if they were all painted flat black. Also the quality control the Japanese were famous for created a high level consistency in each year of the Ironmans production that is hard to beat.
BTW, FYI, there are subtle differences in the Masters and Experts frames.
