Cruising with an Asym 0

I am looking at a used asymm spinnaker, I would prefer a "2" (I think) but this is a "0" (zero). Will it still perform better than my 150 Genoa downwind? Or should i find a 2?

Re: Cruising with an Asym 0

If its a code zero that's not a downwind sail typically...

This guide from North Sails is a good starting point to their sail wardrobe for Spinnakers, Gennakers and Code sails.

Zero is an upwind sail.
