Default RE: Kombat 2005 vs 2006

I'm not sure but I believe the O5s got a bit of a bad image from the magazines. The first few (if ir remember correctly) were of a heavier DurX construction and it seems that some of the mags reviewed these and commented on them as heavy and slow. I don't think this did the model any favours at the time. Very quickly starboard lightened the construction so most 05s were lighter. Having tried both, at the time it made quite a bit of difference.

I currently have a K96 and didn't feel the change to a K97 worth it as the difference is small for my skill level. On top of that the 2 fins suplied with the 06 boards made them a bargain.
