Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
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.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I flew the TNT UL and the std comp today. They don't sit as deep in the Turtle as I thought they would but still sit back well enough that they stay on their back and don't pop out unexpectedly. Super easy to Lazy and lazy cascades are very (very) easy. 540, JL, BS, slots were all there, no problem. I had some trouble with the Taz but that was just me not having the correct timing I'm sure. 2 pop roll ups are stupid easy. Precision was decent.

The UL rolls up fine but a little slower compared to how fast it does other tricks than I was expecting.  Nice Comete on the UL but on the std I would over do the inputs and end up in a Turtle a lot more.

They feel less edgy than they look, that sounds weird but that's how they feel to me. I had that same feeling when I first flew the X-Masque although the TNT is very different than that kite.

The UL was my favorite and I tricked it well. By the time I flew the comp the wind had picked up a lot. I missed many more tricks with it than the ul too but again, the wind was getting strong.

I didn't say it above but I really like them and after about 15 seconds on the UL I was hollering to Denny that I really like the kite Smiley
