Re: Naish Dash question

I'm looking for a new 9m that turns fast, unhooks well and has reasonable float. Dash is exactly what you're looking for. Compared to Torch is just easier kite to ride and yes, hooked in floats much better. It doesn't have that distinctive rocket launch feeling though. I think the height that poten...

Re: Older Naish Torch's on newer bars..?

As I recall Ewan Jaspan was riding pre low V ( high Y) Torch model with that set up. He said he's using 4line bar with added 5th with some adjustment at that time. On the other hand Naish stated that the kite is somewhat redesigned in order to accommodate low V. I haven't tried personally as I repla...

Re: O'neil Hyperfreak vs NP Mission ?

I wonder if I can get away with a Hyperflex XL instead of a XXL. The cut of Hyperfreak is quite slim. l got my usual size and I initially had the feel that is size smaller, except the length. That thing I so stretchy - feels like second skin. Check their sizing table, it looks quite accurate to me....

Re: O'neil Hyperfreak vs NP Mission ?

Hey Nixmatters, Thanks a lot for the technical lesson and for clearing what primarily is the goal designing a wetsuit. Not necessary, but thanks. I wouldn't dare to ask how do you measure the evaporation effect, or the water retention of one vs other. :) I am taking into consideration that Dracop is...

Re: O'neil Hyperfreak vs NP Mission ?

As far I know, Hyperfreak has been designed with performance in mind. Should you look for ultimate warmth there are other models in O'Neills range... However, I believe all dl wetsuits are more or less the same vs single lined due to the evaporation effect. Having in mind that OP is looking for 2/3 ...

Re: O'neil Hyperfreak vs NP Mission ?

O'Neills TBX 3 is second to none. Hyperfreak's material is is amazingly stretchy allowing them to design their wetsuits very slim. Just get your usual size.

Re: Naish 5th line to 4 line bar

You can adjust the bar throw by moving the cleat on the ATB as close as you want. It is designed that way. However, the long bar throw is no an issue on the Dash unless you're used to ride against the stopper ( i.e.overpowered) The thing that I miss on the 4line bar compared to Torch one is the coat...

Re: Naish 5th line to 4 line bar

I asked Naish about that as I was looking for a shorter 50cm ATB last year, which at that time they hadn't in their line. I was told that is no-go due to depower line length difference. Maybe test in light wind conditions is going to be misleading...be careful. Anyway, looking forward to see what yo...

Re: Naish Torch 2017 & ESP system

24 m. is the happy medium, but considering the kite size you may also look for 20m lines. By removing the esp line and attaching the front lines directly to the front pigtails you'll set your kite to freestyle. W/ esp should be the freeride setting. Not sure does it makes big difference but the wind...
