I have a Code Red 02 ( 2007) 11 mts that I use in a Gaastra Gold Series 550. A friend has the same sail CR11 R02 ( 2007) but he uses a Neil Pryde X6 550. My sail looks better and works better too ( more deep both upwind and downwind), his sail start planning earlier (even when we switch the sails). Mine feel a little more full with the same DH ( because the X6 is flex top). But for non race setup I think it work ok. Sorry but never see or test the 2008.
