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.

Nice flying is right. It always makes me wonder when I watch a video how much is the flyer & how much the kite. I'm sure it's both in this case but I still want one Wink

and also who is editing the video!

IMHO it is always the flyer, never the kite.

 Give any top flyer any kite and a little practice time and they can make the kite look like it is saving the world

Further information at

www.alphakites.de

in case you don't know.

This is my favourite kite video! You can dowload it in full quality from the site from the TNT STD page. The pilot in the video is Matthias Haack, Masterclass flyer, the kite was developed by Heiko Eickenberg, maker of NRG, also available from the page above and the Tsunami. The TNT was especially developed for Trick's Party format and optimized for front-rolling tricks like Crazy Copter and Yofades. I've seen Heiko do three Yofades in a row... Very balanced, good precision, moderate pull.
Nice on the belly too. Soft to the touch, fast, some experience is good to have, it's really sophisticed.

The past participle of to fly is flown and not flied. Even Wikipedia agrees on this point.

The best place to ask about the TNT will be Drachenforum where you are now a member. If you find anything out, please report back.

New and correct version...

It looks like the most popular kites in this side of the ocean are British Kites(Benson/JoE, Nivana or may be NSE, SD or Fearless only and nobody interested in any big German kite.

Maybe add 7 to your list of kites that seem on par with those listed here.  I am currently lusting over the UL (little bit of purple in it) that has recently become available - looks amazing.

There was a video sometime ago of someone flying the 7 very well - I couldn't find a link to it, perhaps someone will post it here.

It's all the flyer. Nobody takes a bad kite out and makes a video and posts it. A good video is all about who's flying.

Yes, I'm doing some researching regarding the 7 also but can't find much.
