I guess if the 2011 or 2012 Torches had any quality flaws then the forum would be full with postings addresing that kind of issue.ensor wrote:Thank you for your answers!!!
I have 2009 and 2010 Naish Torch models.I love the way they fly but I have quality issues with the leading edge.Maybe the 2012 or 2013 models have not any issues but I don't want to take the risk to buy again a new one.I want to buy a C kite which is similar to Torch.I got a ride with a 2010 11m Fuel and a 2012 7m fuel and I didn't like it.They "pull"a lot ,the bar pressure is a bit heavier than torch and the turning speed is slower(you have to give more input to the bar to turn the kite).The relaunch is much better because of the "fat" LE.
So I have to ride an airush razor but there is no wind yet
2011 Torch was a bit of a dog by all accountsTorch 2011
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 yetquality issues with the leading edge
Well I`m intrigued...JGTR wrote:Yep, trailing edge was knackered. Needed new material stitched right along the edge approx 3" wide.The trailing edge from 2011 on is made of dacron- are you sure?
