Naish Torch 2018 vs 2019

Postby Lazze » Sun Aug 12, 2018 8:01 pm

Hi people,

Anyone in here knows the differens between these two models ? Besides fixing the low end problem the 2018 torch had, has there been other changes to this 2019 Torch?

Thanks

Lasse

Hi Lasse,

I’ve used the 12 and the 10 so far for the 2019 quiver.
The kites in general have smaller leading edge, different length on the 5th, some changes to the struts and also the inflating pressure has increased a lot.

In the air the kite is having more low end power compared to a well trimmed 2018 version. It does goes more upwind of few degrees.
The 5th line is properly trimmed on the 10 but on the 12 I would suggest a bit longer trim.

Overall the improvement is net.
No bar pressure changes were notable.

Ah, forgot. The esp is different in length. I’ve not tried it.

apart from "low end" which improvements in flight ??

So in 2017 they imprved the hight end.....in 2018 they corrected the miss they did with the lenght of the 5th line and in 2019 this time they improved low end !! What you improve on one side you loose it on the other.... WTF !?
