Thinking of getting a new all round kite (10m2)
Reading good reports about the new North Dice and heard great things about the Bandit.
Anyone ridden the Bandit 7?
Thanks for your thoughts,
A.

Yes only for a short time. Bloody great kite the bandit. Gives you some serious enough yank in the loop so does the dice. I have unhooked the dice, real nice but not the bandit so sorry can't compare.

To keep it simple it depends on what type of power delivery you prefer, you really need to demo both.

There is one stand out difference/s, the bandit will go bigger on the jump, but the dice will smoke the bandit in the surf. The dice is as good as any dedicated wave kite I have ridden.

The bandit works very well in the surf, but its not in the same class as the dice.

So this may be useful depending on what aspect of all round you are hoping to give more credence to.

Watching Mitu's videos i don't think the Bandit will slow you down in any kind of surf...
