Hi, can anyone tell me opinions about this kite ?
I have a sale oportunity to buy it new for 600 uss.
My biggest kite at this moment is an ozone edge 13 mts.
Do you think is a good idea spent that money on a 2008 kite ?
What about the upwind ability of the CONTRA ?
With the Ozone and my north race board i could go on 9 knots.

Thanks for your opinions..

I had two of these kites a 14 m and a 17 m . To be honest they have a stack of grunt but up against a newer high aspect kite such as your edge , they have very limited upwind ability as they sit way further back in the window .
I doubt you will get any benefit over your 13 m edge.once you get the apparent wind up on the edge it would absolutely smoke the contra, also because of the pulley bars on these things the bar pressure is insane :o

, I would never go back to one especially for a race board.different story for mowing the lawn on a twin tip.
