2017 naish torch

Postby jespin4845 » Sun Aug 14, 2016 4:42 am

supposedly the new torch has a bridle, but still gonna be 5 lines? thats what a kite shop said...

i know it comes out wednesday but does anyone have any info?

and before all you dudes start getting butthurt saying they ruined the torch, blah blah blah

they are gonna have the same exact 5 line torch for you for sure cause i saw it at slider jam last week, didn't see the bridled one

i miss my 10m torch, but when it bow tied i got fed up with it...got rid of it, and i almost got a park hd but went with gts4's, kinda stoked to see the new torch...

GTS4 > ParkHD, good choice there

I love my Torchies though, best Naish kite out there by far...

SO removable bridle ala Fuel?

Oh yes, the new bar has a swivel! I have no idea what they were thinking with the 2016 bar without swivel.

The new bar looks dope... I just hope they make a larger chicken loop for unhooking. Ewan has been riding with a custom loop for awhile, i just don't see that mini loop being easy to hook back into. Im also curious to see how the new ripstop really makes a difference in the flying characteristics.

Thanks for those pics!

Love the idea of a BTB manual swivel.

Still no stopper ball? :( I need em for my Full Deadmans dude!

Lol thats not a bridle, thats a halfway connector so you can get it on the corner without putting the flying lines right at the corner

Same shi(t)(t)y lines!!! That must be a cash cow for them since the Torch holds up to extremes well. Well, thats def a green light to buy my own lines :D

DC-401 /301 here I come!

YES!! Nice. When it is that compact it removes the weight up top. :thumb: :thumb:
