2011 Torch was a bit of a dog by all accounts
quality issues with the leading edge
Had quality issues with the leading edge of all my Torches, 2007, 2008 and 2009 - alot of other have aswell. Mine blew out and I 've had to have them repaired and reinforced numerous times. My 2010 Torch hasn't had much use so no problems yet
The trailing edges don't hold up well either, had a 2007 and 2009 that I had to bin because the trailing edge was knackered, although I must stress that both these kites were WELL used.
My friend has a set of 2011 (could be 2012 but don't think so) Torches and the trailing edges are f***ed - so bad he's had to have them reinforced, avarage use, I was certainly very surprised as I remember when he first got them which wasn't that long ago!!
Although saying this I still fly Torches and probably always will, but I don't kite anywhere as much as I used to so wear isn't a big issue for me as they don't get used alot so will last me a long time.
