    Flight TUS-35 is my sub $100 ukulele favorite. New ones go for $49 and are worth at least twice that imho. Bought mine used with M600 strings and it's a keeper.

    Makala Dolphin (or Shark) and the Enya EUC-X1M (concert HPL.) Sadly, the EUC-X1M seems to be out of stock both at Enya's site and on Amazon, but it is my favorite Enya.

    I'll add another vote for the SLNG. But I made the mistake of selling it.

    I'm coming up to the one year anniversary of my last ukulele purchase and all this talk of Flight TUSL-35s is making me think I'm not going to make it that long.

    A tie for first place:

    -Kala KA-SLNG (with PhD strings)
    -Flight TUS-35 (also with PhD strings)

    Both are under $100 and fun to play. They are my “no worries, go anywhere” ukes.

    I have been told the X1M is discontinued. They are selling the X2M, and also a new model with a fretboard that lights up like a Populele.

    They also now have the XK HPL, which seems pretty much like the X1M, but with a koa pattern instead of mahogany.

    I have thirteen ukes that cost me $50 or less, including two that I made.

    Unfortunately(?), I have thirteen at the other end of the scale.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    I guess it would be the Flight TUS-35. I liked the Kmise soprano very much, and it maybe sounds better, but I have ukes that sound great. The Flight sounds good, it's fun to play, and it's durable, so it fills a niche that the Kmise doesn't.

    I do find the thinline ukes more comfortable to play. In that respect I really like the Enya Nova U I gave to my son. The comfort makes up for the sound, which is pretty good, but obviously not great. It makes me think that a good thinline would be nice, but I don't want to go down that shopping rabbit hole.

    Got my Makala Dolphin about a week after they appeared over here in the UK and it is a fabulous little instrument!
    All power and respect to you Concert,Tenor and Baritone players, but Soprano is what does it for me every time! (And my beautiful Sopranino!)
