I'm thinking of getting a used 2013 ozone edge.

But I have heard the kevlar bridles stretch.

How badly does this affect the kites performance?

or does the stretch yeild very little difference?

If that's true I would ask for bridle measurements form Ozone before buying. It's not big deal if you have pdf on it, if not could be pain in the butt.

I have one of the bridle lines replaced during a one year period. It snapped in the air.

Since it's a used kite; get it cheap then put a brand new race bridle on it: http://ozonekitesusa.com/products.asp?cat=Race

Why do you have wear on your line. There is a 10" section where its all faded. How in the hell do you get wear on your lines. No pully's or no moving parts at all. I really don't see where you got that wear from.

The line is much thinner than Cabrinha's, it looks like it just stretched and snapped.

that white are indicates wear and tear like you would normally see on a pulley kite. this one doesn't add up. maybe check the same line other side see if its worn in the same place.
