Review Duotone Dice 9m

No offence but our posts get deleted randomly, so we are letting go of Kiteforum.com
We have no bias
no sponsors
no money funds
and no interested in getting so.

Another -less impressive- statements is the “2 cm longer pig tail at the hard setting for making it the perfect set up for Freestyle/Wakestyle moves, offering massive slack”. How about we just depower our kite 2 cm? Same effect. So this is not innovation. This is marketing which is needed when you introduce a new version of the Dice each year.

At a guess - and based on previous kites from B&M - that pig tail setting is designed for a low V bar setting for Wakestyle. They previously had a similar change for the 4 line / 5 line bar settings. It would seem logical for a similar setting for low V given that you see riders in the Click bar promo vids riding using the low V setting

Dave where did the review go? The lines are not going to be changed this year so please put more review about the kite into your posts and just link to a different page for the lines. Happy duotone line bashing in 2019/2020 hahahaha :thumb:

They will not for 2020 kites? That would be a shame.
