I have demo'd the Dice twice. Once back to back with a 2012 10m Ozone C4 in 18-20 knots, I used the north bar on this test.
Once back to back with a 2014 10m Ozone Reo in 23-28 knots, I used the ozone bar on this test.
At 82kg the I think this would be my usable wind range for the kite. 18-28 knots. At 18 knots it was fun and still had some nice lift. I would be able to use it in lower wind but it would be boring for me. I began to reach for the trim at 25-26knots. Boosts were awesome at the top end of the range.
at 28 were you still in good control with kite usable and fun or were you feel really at the limit? was it flat water?
I like to be powered up, but with the RPM 10m at 26/30 knots the kite deforms and I always struggled with the bar pushed away as much as I could. While a friend with hid 9m fuse was still in very good control... (unfortunately I do not like how the fuse or the rebel feels on the bar with a too much on/off depower)
if with the dice at 28/30knots it will be at its top-end but still in decent control it would be great.

You can't be serious! Ever heard of RPM tearing trailing edges?? Ring a bell? It didn't happen on to my own RPM range yet, but those kites are fragile as hell. How annoying is it to always deflate the kite even if you only want to have a 20 minute coffee break. Two friends didn't usually do it and found it funny that I did: Now their trailing edges are broken If its only about durability, I would never fly RPMs.
