Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Turning Speed: Now weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re talking. This kite makes the Switchblade and Crossbow look like slow turtles. The new bridle attachment points have significantly improved the way this kite turns.

Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Bar Pressure: IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d say itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s pretty much equal to the Contra 12 and 14. Similar to the pressure of the 12m Switchblade. Definitely lower than the Switchblade 16 and Crossbow with mod 16.
Or The Ugly?Phillipp wrote: I haven't flown the CB1 16 with the mod. So I can't really compare the bar pressure. I would assume they are similar.
Which one would you like to choose?Phillipp wrote: The few days we were flying the Contra 17 there were quite a few other Cabrinha bow riders including those currently riding CB1 16m with a mod. According to their direct comparison the Contra 17 has a lower bar pressure. My wrong doing was that I didn't quote them or added some footnotes making a reference to their comments.
