Then it's good we have skilled people like you to teach us all on the only correct opinionJGTR wrote:What a load of crap. C kites aren't just for unhooked.......don't talk about stuff you obviously know nothing about. I've been flying 2010 Cults and Torches back to back today and yep the Cult is ok for normal riding but when pushed it seriously couldn't handle it, the Torch has alot more direct feel (yep that's bar pressure) power through turns allowing you to really get some carving going on, was so much more stable (I had the Cult flapping like a seagull on more than one occasion)Dr_Rosen
But IMHO there is no reason to go to a C kite unless you ride unhooked.
It's the old cliche, Cults (SLEs) like a comfy auto, Torch like a 4wd rally car ie more performance!!!
The Cult is the worst kite I have tried for flat water stuff, so of course a Torch excels for everything on flat water compared to that. (I am sure the cult is a fine wave kite).
In my opinion it is unhooked that the C kite really shine compared to good SLE's.
