Cabrinha Contra 2020 vs 2019 is it worth it ?

Postby appelton » Sat Aug 01, 2020 3:01 am

Has anyone flown both Contra 2020 and 2019 ? I badly need a lightwind 15m kite and 2019 models are currently priced really well. Is worth paying extra for Contra 2020 ?
I know there is a new canopy, and the design seems to be much more refined but since I havn't tried 2020 model I'd highly appreciate if someone who flown both could give me an advice.

Kites barely change at all now. Save your money

Sorry I haven’t flown them. I have an older 15 Contra and really like it. But I read the review below and it sounds like it has stronger fabric and lighter bar pressure. I’ve never had any problems with durability and bar pressure hasn’t been an issue for years. I would go for the savings on the 2019, but you might call some shops and see if they will discount the 2020 since you never know in this economy. You might try posting online that you want to buy a 2020 and are looking for a deal and maybe someone will offer a backdoor insider discount (employee discount, instructor or dealer going below list price). Post in the used for sale sites as want to buy ad.
