I am curious if the dice has pulleys? I love the aspect that the kites that I am on are without them and enjoy the direct handling that they offer. I find (and I can only speak about the kites that I have owned) that when the kite has pulleys in the bridle that the kite gets spongy.... it has that delay in turning and bar response.

I also prefere a static bridle without pulleys. The Dice has pulleys on the front briddles (one on each wingtip).

@Westozzy:

Cause i wanna use it to hang my rash, shorts and towel, and wouldnt like to see the stuff all crushed at the base of a deep long V!

Seriously, i assume it's a conventional double v with pulley, but my concern is that since it's a kite that "flags" via both fronts together, its bridle may not be as compact and "shallow" as my cup of tea demands, for maneuvering both in the ground (catching stuff) and in the air (longer bridles mean more lag to input)

Have you flown the larger sizes (that's what im in the market for atm)? Up to which size do u think would still be reactive enough for send&follow waveriding? I know it's question without a definitive answer, but take your shot.
