Hi
I have traded up my 2012 Torch for the 2014 a couple of months ago now. So I can compare these two years
The new bar is shorter and smaller diameter and more the size a bar should be for this type of kite. With the bar on the shorter settings with the kite on the slower turning speed I can now get my 12 to turn like a 14, and my 9 to turn like a 12 :D Perfect for wake style.
The 2012 always used to stall and fly backwards in if you landed with too much slack in the lines unhooked, The 2014 kites have never done this and they feel way more stable unhooked. Also they seem to react quicker to gusts and I tend not to have to trim kite much with the depower strap.
Upwind they are the same, the main difference is they are more stable unhooked, and smaller bar is an improvement. The pop and slack is still just as good as previous years and the loops will still spank you if you get it wrong.
Hope this helps
JR

Did you feel any difference in bar pressure, and speed of the kite ?

The relaunch is still pretty good although sometimes if underinflated it can be more prone to fold in half more.

I have not flown the 2013 torch but I recon the 2014 has the same bar feel as the 2012 :thumb:
