What's the power difference between a bow kite and an open C

What is the power difference between a bow kite and an open C kite of the same size from the same manufacturer ? Could it be as much as two sizes difference in power from a bow to an open C. What are the main differences in the way they feel and fly ?
Thanks in advance,
Hellfire
