Not back to back but on different days.

The new BWS is a very fine wave kite now. Really quick, nimble, drifts superbly. Really good build both kite and bar aka ozone look alike. But that's it, it is principally a wave kite, with a very specific purpose.

Dice is a different animal altogether. Allowing jumping potential and unhooked freestyle as well. Way more power per size. Drift I'm not too sure really, they both drift really well. Both are decent down the line kites, but the BWS would be a really good fly and follow, so is the dice but I think the pro is more nimble with less power through the turns.

Thanks Westozzy,

Upwind ability?
Bar pressure?
How "bad" is the jumping on the Noise Pro & what conditions did you try it in?

Anyone else had the pleasure?

Upwind fine, dice better per size.

Bar pressure both light to medium, dice a bit more on the wake style setting.

Jumping, don't even think about it, it is a stay on the water wave machine and that's it. Unless you want to loop it continually of course.

Remember the dice is norths answer to the say the Park and the rpm.

The pro is BWSs answer to say the ozone REO or north Neo.

Very different markets.
