FAO Dan at Duotone

Postby JamesVegas » Fri Aug 23, 2019 7:41 pm

Hey Dan. I'm super amped to be picking up my new 2020 Dice kites and Duotone foil tomorrow.. Just wondering what the best setting on the Dice would be for foiling? I appreciate it's not a foiling kite per se but how do I get the best out of them? Thanks in advance.

hmmm. I'm still not a great foiler, but I've been on Dice the whole time I'm on the foil without any kite issues (just balance issues for me at this point). Especially with the new lighter-weight TE I think it should work great for foiling.

I don't think settings should really matter, it'll probably ship on middle setting for rear line, you could possibly move rear attachment to rear spot for quicker turning with less pull through loops but not sure it makes a huge difference for foiling one way or the other. Let us know what you think of the combo when you get some time on it.

PS I have a nephew first name James, middle name Vegas.

Damn. For one day of Kindergarten under your belt you have become very tech savvy.

I will report back on the setup. I loved the new Spirit Carve on a 75cm mast. Cannot wait to try it all out.
