One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

All I am saying..... is give peace a chance.

But those are the numbers on my two kites also. Whether that means they were that manyeth* of TNT or of Alphakites total output, I don't know.

* yeah.... looks about right.

I'am a very novice pilot but the TNT makes me look better than I really am and so far I'am very happy with the UL.

TNT UL

What I found amazing is the low wind capability of the Comp version. And the craftsmanship is second to none, closed seams e.g.

I've watched a lot of video, flown a few and I own 1 (regular UL TNT). I agree with some of what's been posted and disagree with lots of the other stuff.

Some quick thoughts.............

For most tricks,to me anyway, it's a super easy kite to trick with good enough precision. Some tricks do need a lighter touch but nothing unreasonable. The first time I tried one, it took me about 1 second to start banging tricks out on it and want one of my own.

Sits well in the Turtle but not as deep as I was thinking it would. Tazes, slots and 540s are easy.

Based on the videos I had seen, my expectations were for a much clickier / edgier tricking kite and it just doesn't feel that way to me. It looks edgier while tricking than it feels. They took smaller inputs than I imagined they would. The tricks are pretty good / clean looking and it looks good in the air though.

It does get upset in very poor wind and can knock that big grin that is usually stuck on my face while flying it off. But....Then again, many would never even fly in the crap I call wind. In decent conditions, it's all rainbows and unicorns with the TNT, super cool tricking fun.

UL Comp is the best TNT, it flies better than the UL (I've owned them both, but kept the Comp)

STD Comp is very nice, the 3PT leading edges seem a bit weak a first thought, but the kite can handle some strong winds (never flown a normal STD)

Where do you order it from?

Can Anyone else compare it to an NSE for a second opinion?

You order from Alphakites.

That was rather too close to a link to a commercial site. Feel free to make use of The Google however. - zippy8

The NSE is also a very good kite, along with the TNT way more capable than most fliers!

The TNT STD COMP goes pretty low on the wind range, good flyer as low as 2mph, 4mph is sweet for slack line tricks and rolls up a bit better than the TNT UL Comp, but I would have to say I like the UL just a bit, "small bit" Better
