2020 Dice Bridle on 2019 Dice

Postby CALencioni » Wed Jul 01, 2020 7:30 am

I have an 8m dice that needs it’s bridal replaced. Is it possible to use the 2020 bridle on 2019 dice? I’d like to try that pulley-less setup.

Do you have a friendly dealer nearby that might let you lay your kite over the top of a 2020 one? You'd want to check that the bridle attachment points are in the same place (and that there are the same number of them) before buying a new bridle.

How did this end? I am also looking to replace the bridles of the 2019 9m and would be nice to make it without pulleys.

As i know 2020 Dice's do not have pulleys and 2019 does. Not sure that those would match.

Does the 2019 Dice have an active pulley on the bridle?

Basically is it already effectively pulleyless? E.g. the 2019 Rebel has pulleys, but they are only there for relaunch/QR. When tension is applied on the front lines in normal use, the pulleys go tight up against a stopper so don't make any difference. Just wondering if its the same on the Dice?
