TNT by Alphakites, man I love the way this kite looks tricking. Anybody have one in the US?
I want one....

Peace

James, next time you're down this way you're welcome to fly mine.  Wink

Wow Denny, I had no idea you picked one up! What do you think of it? I'd love to fly it.

Did they cut the LEs down for shipping?

Direct from the German manufacturers so far. They are called Alphakites and they Will Not be linked to, in accordance with forum policy.

Thanks Mike, I knew their web page, but I thought perhaps they would have any channel with shops.

Thank you.

Its a blast.  Cheesy
Seriously. Its a really nice kite. Tracks well, does nice snappy corners, and is equally good at tricks, both old school and new. And the build quality is superb.

Only comp frame or completely comp ?
If its an real comp.... whats about the tail weight, are there 2 euro-cent added ?  If not, you can try the comp with + 4 gram (0,12-0,15 oz).

Its the comp version. No 2 euro cents though. I'll have to pull the tail weight and see what it weighs.  Wink

Denny, I have a meeting in Oakland on 11-13. Maybe the next day when I drive home we can get together and fly a bit. I still have an itch to fly a TNT bad. I get my leaders all in a knot just thinking about it Cheesy

I've got a couple you're more than welcome to give a toss. With any luck my TNT Zero will be here by then.
I'll send you a PM. There are some places between Oakland and here that are much better flying than up here.  Wink

Was doing my coincide-exactly-when-superimposed-thingy again and guess what? The Ophidion and Black Pearl are close in form to the TNT - now there's an alternative [or two] to crow's feet.  Cheesy

BTW got all three - so I better shut up! Lips sealed

I'm dying to try one of these.

The bridle attachment seems interesting to me - it connects on the LS.  I wonder (assume actually) that this has something to do with how well this kite seems to taz and flat-spin in general.

It seems to have some tricky moves - I wonder how well it handles higher (mid teens) winds.

Only the comp version has that special bridle attachment...

I had mine for a go in pretty high wind 10 - 15 mph-ish and the frame feels solid, not much wobbling.

However I broke the ULE trying to fly around in a wrapped yoyo. The thing about the TNT STD Comp is that for a standard kite, it has relatively weak LE rods of 3PTs. I'd think that rules out stuff like wrapped yoyo flights, nuclear tip stabs and stuff that requires heavy stress on the LEs.
