Naish Torch (2011) Hot
The world views the Torch as the benchmark in C-kites. Its proven legacy of performance makes it the perfect choice for riders looking for a kite that is equally at home on the competition circuit, or when riding unhooked in the waves. The Torch has depower similar to a bridled kite by virtue of its ability to fly quickly to the edge of the window. The smooth power delivery and easy handling make hooked or unhooked riding effortless. The Shift Control System allows easy water relaunch and arc support. Kevin Langeree marched to the top of the podium and earned the World Championship Title using the Torch. For 2011, the Torch continues its unsurpassed performance with polished refinements that will take all riders to the next level.

I borrowed my friends naish torch for the first time and the next day I went out and bought my own. I'm a kite slut- I borrow everyones kites all the time. I've tried every kite on that damn beach but never found one I would go out and purchase. I'm never going back to bow kites, they are a joke. This kite hasn't back stalled on me, hasn't oversheeted, and doesn't just decide, 'oh hey, today I'm going to depower in mid air and drop you' like a typical bow kite. My only complaint is I wish there were a swivel on the lines and I don't know why they put all that extra material on the back end of the kite, it makes it heavy. Other than that, I'm hooked and happy with my new naish torch. Time will tell how the durability holds up.
Torch is the one!
