    K-2006 or TF-100

    I was under the impression the K-2006 was the kit to have but I also see some of the more experienced guys say they use the TF-100
    Can I get some feedback on which one will serve me best?

    Thanks,

    It mostly boils-down to the amount of reagents you get with each kit. You can see a comparison here: Pool School - Test Kits Compared.

    And the TF100 is only available from 2 companies in the US. Not sure if they would ship over there or not.

    Some folks have had luck with using a reshipper company. You send it them, they send it to you. My concern is getting it through customs. I seem to remember from last year, that was an issue.

    I will check who stocks TF-100 in USA IF MY POOL STORE CAN't locate one in Bangkok. I can always have it delivered to my brother in WA and have him send to me.
    I do that frequently, I have not lived in America for 10 yrs

    Like many of us "Internationals' getting the right test kit from the US is difficult. Needless to say I think you'll find it near on impossible to get either the TF-100 or K-2006 in Thailand. I would definitely recommend getting your brother to send you one but might be worth checking the Thai customs rules beforehand.

    Customs are generally after drugs and weapons. A re-shipping service or buddy should have a pretty high success rate.

    Pin is correct, I find Thai customs to be pretty easy. I have been through Bangkok airport countless times and usually have some type of food every time, never a problem, even when I brought my dog from China, it took 30 minutes in Bangkok to get him cleared and no quarantine, but get caught with ONE marijuana seed and you will do 10 yrs in the Bangkok Hilton.......a please you never want to see the inside of.
