What to think of the new Naish Torch 2010 in 12M ?
On their website, i cannot find any information about the windrange.
As well i have hear the octopus system can be a big problem if the bladder got damaged ?
Torch is a nice kite. It has good windrange, but not as good as the cult. You might get away with a 10.5 cult or Helix. If the wind is mostly in the 12 knots then yes a 12 might be the ticket, but if it is a little higher then 10.5....
If jumping is more important, I would recommend the 2010 Helix...my all time favorite kite. Really powerful. The lightest bar setting is a little too light for me, but it is adjustable...I use the lightest bar pressure setting only in light winds...and sometimes if in onshore conditions..
I've never had problems with my octopus system.
I've heard that the problem occurs when you need to repair the bladder and pull it out, then how to make it work with Octopus ?
Shall be hard to fix back the octopus system ?
