unfortunately the pics of the Yahoo Groups don't work here when.
Maybe there is a picture somewhere else?

Looks like there is seven struts plus carbon wingtips, but I could be wrong.

I don't know if that is really an improvement. Naish does some pretty aggressive marketing, but I am not sure whether it's the number of panels that makes it fly so good.

I think the same thing. I feel that more may be worse. Picture this; A car has more than 10,000 seperate components in it. When building this car in a factory, if they get it 99.9% percent right, it still leaves 10 pieces of said named car either in a non working manner or a not installed properly manner. If you have a kite that has 50 panels in it and one that has more than 100 panels in it, and you apply this same theory to them, well, I think you see what I am saying. In short, more panels equals more cutting and stitching, and more cutting and stitching leave more room for human error, even if just to a small extent. Their are more and in my opinion better ways of making the kites retain their shape and rigidity without cutting them into 120 pieces and sewing them back together.
