2012 vs. 2013 Naish Torch?

Postby Osprey1 » Mon Apr 29, 2013 9:53 pm

What are the differences between the 2012 and 2013 Torch? Is it worth the extra purchase the 2013's instead of 2012's?

The 2013 Torch is just the best Torch ever.. Have tried the most years, but this one really stands out!

Test one for yourself, you will know what i mean. If you dont have a option to test, take my word for it, it is that good..!

I've ridden the 11 quite a bit, but never side by side with the 2012. I really like it. I do find it hard to pinpoint exactly the difference since there was quite a bit of time in between I rode the 2012 and 2013, but the kite is awesome for sure. :-)

Be careful when you loop it. It has *some* pull. :thumb:
