Now a question which puzzles me is - if I mount 425 stabilizer (259 sq.cm) with 590 wing instead of 330 stabilizer (217 sq.cm) - would I feel increased lowend and get lower take-off speed?
I mounted a 483 with my 590 and I can attest that it improved the low speed take-off immensely. Not sure if that helps you.

Did you need to modify the kitesurf fuselage to make the 483 (surf) stabilizer fit?

Did it give any negatives compared with the standard 330 stabilizer ?

re 590: I have read somewhere another needed to make modifications for the 483 on kite fuse, although I did not. imo, 330 felt too skatey, 483 was more stable & slightly better low end. currently happy on 590 w/ 420

Yes. Here's what I did. With the 483 in hand, I used a #2 lead pencil and scribbled heavily onto the 483. I then set it into the placement on my older 2017 Ghost Whisperer kite fuselage, which left tiny lead pencil marks on the fuselage. I gently filed off these marks. I then repeated this process for maybe 30 minutes until the 483 was perfectly seated.... paying close attention to proper pitch angle. It's a very easy simple task, and your older 330 will still fit.

Negatives? I haven't noticed any, but for the purist it's possible that it will effect higher speed performance.
