Re: Naish Torch 2017 Problems (No Power)

Perhaps.. It does make a little more responsive but I think the big plus w/ the new material is in regards to durability and overall resistance. I crashed it in the waves this season in Cape Town and never had to fixed it as oppose to my older Torch that blew the central panel :(

Re: Naish Torch tuning (2013 8m)

Having the front lines and the 5th line at equal length is a great start. I'd then suggest setting a pigtail on the kite's 5th line to fine tune it to your liking. Remember that the 5th line needs moderate tension but shall sag a little when fully sheeted in with your bar.

Re: New Naish Dash

I've got 2017 11m torch but I can't decide if I should get the 9m Dash or Torch. The high end on the 11m is insane and a friend of mine told me his 2017 9m torch lacked in the low end. I'm thinking maybe an 8m or 9m dash or torch. Any advice would help It really depends on your riding style. If you...

Re: Naish torch on North bar

Don't do it. :o Why? :D As previously explained the Y positioning matters and both North and Naish have been set designed to be set differently. However I can tell you that the 2015 Torch and up works fantastically well with a traditional low Y 5th line bar as on the 2017 Naish Torque bar. Hope thi...

Re: New Naish Dash

Its realy a fun kite for unhookt stuff.. Pop`s well, nice slack. Love my 12 and 14 on a TT. If I replace my 2015 Torch 14m with Dash, which size could match (or be better) regarding low end ? Thanks. The Dash 14m will definitely have a better low end because of its higher projected area compare to ...

does it looks rather like parks before park HD?
Very true Indeed! But on the marketing materials, Naish mentions the same aspect ration of the Park HD which is about 4.6. It's still lower than a Torch but relatively high I'd say for a Freeride/freestyle kite.

Looks more like It'll be Wednesday and most likely Thursday if they want epic conditions.

Re: to all Naish riders . Best boosting kite ?

I absolutely agree with the above comments. The Torch has the most lift within Naish's kite line and possibly the entire C-shape market. However exploiting its lift requires experience. You must be confortable being very powered up while properly popping at high speeds. I've been riding in Cape town...
