Naish Torch 2020

Postby BillyGoatGruff » Thu Dec 31, 2020 4:51 pm

Anyone riding the 2020 Naish Torch ? I'm looking at getting the 14m for lower wind freestyle (85kg). I have had Torch's since 2012, currently have some 2019 Torchs and the low end is not ideal, but when it's on it's an outstanding unhooked freestyle and big air kite (pre-2017 the low end was brilliant). How is the low end on the 2020 ?

Hi Billy,

2019 and 2020 torches are identical according to a Naish team rider.

Cheers

Hi Billy

I have the 2020 torch 14 with the stomp. I Think the low end works okay, I only weigh 68kg but using the stomp with a deep rocker line. Compared to the Fone WTF. RRD obsession pro. Cab fx. NAISH dash2020 it’s more or less the same.

I waiting to get 2022 torch, but sure if I should go with the traverse pro model.

I have 11m 2020 however I kept my 14 Dash. According to me the Dash has better low end, not by a big margin for sure but it's noticeable. My kiting buddy got 14m Torch which is definitely very sweet kite with amazing high end esp when rigged w/ 20 lines...
Sometimes he rides his 14 Torch when I ride my 11 although I am bit heavier. Go figure :) matter of skills I suppose.
We both got WTFs and that board is veeery nice.
EJ pro looks very interesting also I must admit
