What the heck are you guys talking about? Kite colors?

I rode '06 16m torch last weekend. Liked it a lot, it's very smooth and controllable, turns fast for a 16m, very good depower range. In a word, it's a fun kite - feels very well balanced.

Hey,Azazelo could you give some more details about the Torch 06 pls.?
How do you compare it to the 05/ turning, hang, b.end,h.end etc./. Is the LE thinner? Is there any changes to the Shift sys.
I have 05 torch 16 wich is making me better rider- each session basis and I`m considering to stick with the Torches....

You can find info about Designer’s technical comments on creating the 2006 Torch: phpbb/news_show.php?m_id=151

You can also find a torch review in dutch on http://www.kitehigh.nl

""Review Torch 12.2006
1 august 2005

We have got the possibility the Naish Torch 12 model 2006 of Naish importer kubus, of testing so that we vast review concerning can write there.

Dominant testrider
Name: Erik Verheij.
Age: 16 years.
Weight: approximately 70 kilos.
Kite now: 2 years.
Level: kiteloopt and make board offs 360.
Own material: Naish Ravens and Thorn 129 board.

Conditions
Wind: good 4 up to 5 Bft.
: cloudy with in the afternoon more sun.
Water: tightly to choppy conditions.

Expectations
The Torch have been developed for trucjes of this time, the so-called ' new-school tricks '. For this kite easy uitgehaakt must sail, rapidly twist and well depoweren. All this makes handles passes and kiteloops accessible. Piglet air is for me an important component but there the kite for has not been intended. Probably the Naish will improve Raven for that component its. According to the information of Naish the Torch would be faster than previous year. This would be especially well noticeable at the larger half-measures.

First impression
Once the kite from the case to have obtained, appears that sound finishing has hardly changed of Naish. Octopus system is also on this model present. This ensures that the kite in a time can be pumped up. On the first eye is, which the struts and the tubes thinner become to be in comparison with the 2005 models. It is striking that the wingtips have become broader. I find the design with the prints on the tips good see. The case is not very large but very sound and functional. Unfortunately is everything still this way new that the Torch 2006 bar are not yet ready. We tell have let our that the bar is entirely renewed. Thus you to the profile on the bar are able feel to what left and Right is, so that you can keep him no longer found oneself fixed.

On the range
It is up to that point! The kite stand tight in air and sense also terrible stably.

On water
After half uurtje I touched varen quite got used to the kite. From the beginning it sensed trusted. The bardruk are a lot nicely, not too much, too a little. You feel therefore well to where the kite are themselves. The difference with my Naish Raven is that the Torch what more rapidly twists, which makes the kite nicely playful. From time to time with old-school trucs such as board-offs and one-footers had I, however, watch out that I did not draw hard to the bar because then the kite go as a cannonball down and had I rapidly correct. Busy that you feel the moment you will jump, is thus awful constructive. You go quietly up and thus quietly down. The kite have more upward strength and then I expected hangtime! The kite sense also uitgehaakt still terrible gemoedelijk. By its high turn speed the kite have been sticking out arranged for the necessary kiteloops.

Or busy well can I cannot drain you actual this way well say because I was not overpowered.

Resum?strong >
All in all very nice kite which of everything what has, but for Freestyle tricks really terrible is. For the real piglet airs I myself nevertheless catch the Naish Raven. I think that Naish reach the aim certainly of these kite!
