Re: Naish Torch 2017 Problems (No Power)

Has anyone tried The 2017 bar om the torch from 2016, and how does it work? I'm currently using the 2017 bar on my 2016 8m that I haven't changed it. It works perfectly fine; however, you do need to adjust the front kite's pig tails to the length of the 2017's or the kite will oversheet a little. I...

That's what I'm saying. You can get away w/ a 12m if you're a lighter rider or fortunate to live in a windy area; otherwise the 14m is a must.

Re: Naish Torch 2017 Problems (No Power)

The Torch hasn't really changed much since 2015; in fact only for 2017 they've made minor changes. This year besides for the new canopy material they've slightly reduced the length of the central struts and slightly lengthened the smallest side struts to be better suited for the new low V bar setup....

Re: Naish Torch 2017 Problems (No Power)

I personally "fixed the issue" by shortening the back lines by just a knot but making sure the front and 5th lines remain at equal length. I tried back to back the 2016 and 2017 Torches and did notice the 2017 to be slightly less powerful but not to the point that Octo describes it. We can't be comp...

Re: Naish Torch 2017 Problems (No Power)

You're right on Zloiyoha. I don't think I've seen Kevin riding w/ < a 9m Torch in Cap Town when most people are screaming to get out of the water w/ their 7m kites :)

Re: Naish Torch 2017 Problems (No Power)

Hi Octo, I've been riding Torches since the the beginning and I'll have to agree w/you but it's primarily due to the stock setting this year setting all lines at equal length. On the previous models the back lines have always been shorter by 1/12 inch +/- which is how the Torch likes to be ridden IM...
