I doubt youll find a bad review anywhere....very sweet kite, super stable and user friendly....compared to other C kites this would prob (IMO) be the tamist, Fuel, Vegas look to be a bit more brutal especially on the loops....torch loops nice without ripping your limbs off so to speak, nice amounts of pull, pulls through turns and the kite needs nill trimming prior to unhooking, this kite was designed for unhooking in mind so is trimed to ride this way. Bar set up is primo with chick loop locking when unhooked, the loop is presented to hook back in without having to take a hand off the bar to locate. Jump on one if you get a chance to test! A friend convinced me to get on 'C' for a season, I came from sle onto these (tested fuel and torch and was keen on both...torch just happend to have better deal locally) I was super surprised how sweet the C's were (definatly dont deserve the brutal rep they have...modern C's are simply very sweet kites, even relaunch is simple when you got the 5th line thing down. The only issue I have had is with wear on the chicken/trim rope where the bar rubs against the woven in end join....simple to replace but so has not worried me.....low end on 12 could have been better but im probably fatter than most....top end is sweet, loves a good breeze.....find someone who has one and try it.....if you have to buy blind you will definatly not be dissapointed.

Torch 08 is a very good(one of the best) freestyle kite with also a very good depowerrange.
Kiteloops are just like the Fuels or the Vegas and not less powerfull!!
Kite is very stable like most of the C kites.
