Now that I have logged more than a dozen sessions on the Torque 10, I have this to say:
The turning is still somewhat weird for me, coming from a C background, but I have found that the other bow pilots find the turning acceptable, only that it does not turn on its axis, rather a curve turning bow.
I have never had such an easy kite to relaunch! Even compared to my 5th line C, the Torque touches water and the next moment is airborne - just from keeping the tension (which I do instinctively).
When I had only Cs, I used to rig the 2 kites I had, and ride one or the other whenever the wind strength changed. These days, I only rig the Torque and it holds from 13 to 24 Knots for me (138x40 Skywalker @ 82 Kg).
I find it very easy to jump. This is totally different from the Cs -- with the Torque I sort of let the kite up from 10, loading as it goes, and then just pull the bar to convert to lift.
I have had a leak from under the LE bladder valve on the tip. As I mentioned this to Steve from Fluid Kiteboarding, along with the fact that I had never crashed or otherwise stressed the kite, he proceeded to send me a new LE bladder. It made me very happy that he stood by what he sells.
So, all in all, I must say I am very pleased with this kite.
