at naishkites.com they look exactly the same. even the same colors.
aren't the bags different, maybe the colors (brown and white LE and white struts).
the fifth line connection- isn't anything different beside the shape ?

well the 05 is one color, with a tribal pattern across...as far as I remember, so if your kite looks like the one on their page you have the 06..simple as that..unless someone sold you a prototype with the 06 design...if so I guess the prototype is very close to a production model...
where did you get the kite? and how much did you pay?

Brown white is almost certain 2006 since those colours weren't used in the 2005 as far as I know.

in the naish site there is a link to 2005 gear. and the picture of the torch for 2005 is the same for the one you showd for 2006.

Let's just call it a Torch II then, shall we? And get off this 05/06 nonsense.
It was first in the shops, back end of July, early August 2005.
The first of the Naish kites to be updated to the new model.
And the 05 website was updated accordingly.
Expecting an entire product range of several kites and several boards to be released in December, is just rubbish.

:roll:
