does it looks rather like parks before park HD?
Very true Indeed! But on the marketing materials, Naish mentions the same aspect ration of the Park HD which is about 4.6. It's still lower than a Torch but relatively high I'd say for a Freeride/freestyle kite.

The Dash 14m will definitely have a better low end because of its higher projected area compare to the Torch. There'll be more utilized surface due to its shape. However, if you're truly into unhook moves I'd highly recommend staying on the Torch as the feel and slack is superior.

I read on the other forum that the "shark tooth technology" trailing edge reinforcements are lifting and peeling away and the stitches coming undone.... did anyone hear of that problem and is it fixed on the released kites?

I've got 2017 11m torch but I can't decide if I should get the 9m Dash or Torch. The high end on the 11m is insane and a friend of mine told me his 2017 9m torch lacked in the low end. I'm thinking maybe an 8m or 9m dash or torch. Any advice would help

Small review of Naish Dash 12m in light wind. Soon I try to make more detailed review, when conditions are better for riding.

Watching that reminded my of how crappy kite production used to be. No way you could pull em out of the bag and just fly em perfectly trimmed like that. Usually took a good half hour of tuning to get em right. That one, trim all the way out, light wind, at noon, sheeted in..... perfect! Get some time on it and get some stretch into the lines and it will be that sweet spot of "almost" overheated max power.

QC has definitely improved.
